I saw a post about this earlier today. It will get released in Japan first and maybe hit the global market a few months after that. I like the idea of having 2 cameras on it.

Considering getting this to use along side my current DS lite.

Reason for keeping DS Lite:
To play Guitar Hero :P (No GBA slot on the "i") and I don't really like the look of the DSi

Reason for buying DSi:
Download Store!!! (I expect there's already homebrew to edit photos and the other stuff and I have the DS Browser) Hoping the built in browser is better than the current DS one though :P

I'm shocked Nintendo hasn't jumped into the cell phone gaming market. They could test the waters with Android or even the iPhone app store. I carry around my phone a whole lot more than my DS.

I happen to have Nintendo DS Lite and Nintendo Wii (I have five game consoles altogether as I might be developing games in the future). Anyway, I'm using Nintendo Wii to download demos to my Nintendo DS Lite. I already have a digital camera and another one on my Nokia phone, so I don't need that feature either. But of course, nice to see new development for handheld consoles also.
