Since last year, more than 1.7 million unique gamers have used Nintendo’s Wi-Fi network. Some time ago, Nintendo announced that they were also going to make a web browser for the Nintendo DS. A final release date has now also been announced. From October 6, we can all surf the www. An on-screen keyboard and stylus make it easy to surf the Internet via the Nintendo DS with PDA-like features. It is also possible to send and receive e-mail, arrange banking, shop online and chat.
Of course you can use your DS at home in a Wi-Fi environment, but of course also at the many free hotspots. The double screen also has a function. On the bottom screen you will see the entire webpage on which it is possible to ‘click’ on certain parts with your stylus. This will be projected enlarged on the top screen. Problems with the memory of the DS will not occur, as the Nintendo DS Browser will be accompanied by a memory extension pack in addition to the standard cartridge. Based on the Opera desktop browser, Opera brings superior speed and screen layout to web pages to the Nintendo DS.
The estimated price will be €45.
