In the latest issue of EGM, it stated that the new model of the Nintendo DS, the DSLite will hit US shores on May. ( Scan of the Article ) The fastest selling gaming system in Japan, the DSLite, is also said to be priced at around the same price of the original DS, $130. The release date is possibly to coincide with the release of the new Mario Brothers game due for May. Also reported by various internet sources, the planned Nintendo DS internet web browser by Opera will be out in Japan by June and an unconfirmed December release date in American soils.

With so many improvments on what I thought where problems for the Original DS, I am very excited and surprised to see a release date so soon. What are your thoughts on the DSLite?</center>[/doHTML]

I actually don't mind the way the (existing) DS looks. I also have no problems with the brightness of the screen either. I did think it was a tad heavy at first, but I got used to it very quickly. My only complaint with be with the shoulder buttons. I do find them a bit awkward to use, but it's nothing I can't get used to and it hasn't hindered my gameplay any.
The thinness of this new DS Lite seems too thin to me. I could see my hand hurting after only a few minutes of using it, but seeing as though I haven't actually even seen one much less tried one out I can't really say for sure.
I love my DS and haven't regreted buying it at all. Now, if Nintendo pulled what they pulled making the GBA-SP model after that horribly difficult to see the screen first version of the GBA ... then I'd be pissed. beigesmile.gif

I am really excited to read about the DS Web browser. If they can pull it off and make it useable ... that'll be very very cool. I can't think of how many times I have been sitting on the couch and wanted to quickly surf the web for some movie line or song lyric or something quick. Now, it'll just be a quick DS away!
