Even before Nintendo announced it, the DSi had been the talk of the town. According to our Japanese correspondent, the DSi will be 12 percent thinner, and will get rid of the GBA slot entirely.

The DSi will also include two built-in cameras (one reportedly VGA resolution) and music playback. It will add an SD card slot and internal storage (we don't yet know how much) to enhance its multimedia capabilities.

The screens are now slightly larger at 3.25 inches, photos can be synced to the Wii Photo Channel, and the unit will include a free browser application.

  • Nintendo has announced that it will be about 12% thinner than the DS Lite.
  • The new handheld will contain two cameras (a 0.3 megapixel [300,000 pixels, 640 x 480 resolution] VGA camera on the internal hinge pointed towards the user, and a camera on the outside of the shell)
  • Larger screens (3.25 inches as opposed to the previous 3 inches).
  • Improved speakers.
  • The power switch was replaced with a power button, as the original DS had, now located next to the bottom left side of the touch screen.
  • A new SD card slot will be utilized for external storage of pictures and downloaded software and to play AAC audio.
  • The DSi will have its own internal flash memory. Photos can be synced to the Wii's Photo Channel. It is possible to download games from an online store, called the DSiWare Shop, and store them on the DSi. The applications will either be free, 200, 500, or 800+ Nintendo Points.
  • It has been reported that the DSi will utilize region locking for DSi-specific software, since it will provide Internet services tailored individually for each region. In addition, the DSi uses rating-based parental controls, which differ by country.
