Nintendo announce their new version DSm and it has some nice features:

  • Overall size has been reduced — DSi is 12% or 2.6 millimeters slimmer than the Lite.
  • Comes with an external 0.3 Megapixel camera (for 640 x 480 pixel pictures) and a VGA camera located on the hinge, directed towards the user. You’ll be able to edit pictures using the touchscreen.
  • Full music playback functionality, including adjustable pitch and playback speed. 
  • Both screens have been expanded to 3.25 inches.
  • SD memory card slot is included, and there’ll be on-board memory also.
  • Will ship with an built-in Nintendo DS web browser.
  • DSi will allow users to download games from DSWare, a new service that operates with Wii Points — or, as they are now known, Nintendo Points.
  • Logging onto DSWare for the first time will grant users 1,000 free Nintendo Points.
  • DSWare comes in four pricing categories: free (!), 200 Nintendo Points, 500 Nintendo Points, and 800 Nintendo Points.
  • Will come in lovely matte white and matte black. Begone, foul fingerprints that have taunted us so!
  • And finally, it launches on November 1st in Japan, and will cost ¥18,900, or roughly $179
