I have not really had any use for Nintendo products since I was about 16......
Just a guess, but maybe the 'pen' snaps into either the bottom or the top?
Say, now there's an idea... e-Reader software for the DSi XL?
The DSi is kinda ackward to hold since it is made for kids. This might actually be comfortable to hold, and the increased screen size will be awesome. Now sony needs to get their crap together and make gaming consoles that can really compete. They have great equipment, they just can't market it for success anymore.
I told my kids this was coming, but no... they had to have DSi's for x-mas (they already had DS's). I'm *not* buying this next year.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
LMFAO, so how about the new one coming out the year after that? :D
last time i used a Nintendo was a year or 2 ago and it was the wii :D (not much of a Nintendo guy -.-)
Haha, Nintendo has made a business of making us buy underperforming gaming hardware.
Yeah, that's one of the things I wanted for the original Nintendo DS. I thought it'd be a natural for electronic books as well as personal productivity software-- nothing fancy, just an appointment calendar, contact list, and to-do list sort of thing. (I wasn't looking for a music player, since I was still on the hard-disk iPod.)
But no one listened. Years later, I bought an iPod Touch and that fills the bill that the DS with various letters tacked onto it couldn't fulfill.
But since that's more of an "adult" device and the Nintendo is more of a "kids" device (the Sony abomination is a "nobody" device), I have to wonder-- does Nintendo imagine that the only way kids will be educated on a video game system is with mediocre quiz games? My nephew-to-be, 11 years old, turned down a Nintendo in favor of an iPod for Xmas, partly because of the music player and games, but partly because of the Kindle app. See, Mario? You're missing a market segment here.
