    [​IMG] DSi vs. DSLite Web Browser Speed Comparison
    How much faster is the DSi?


    As some of you may know, the new DSi states that it has a "faster browser" than the DS Lite. But just how much faster is it? Is it faster at all? Or is Nintendo just trying to get you excited about the DSi? You be the judge. (If you want to watch in higher quality, visit the source. They have uploaded the video to a higher quality site than YouTube)

    That's quite a bit faster.
    I'm pretty sure the PSP one is faster though - but there might not be someone with both a PSP and a DSi to verify that [​IMG]

    Maybe faster in loading times, but I guess having an actual touchscreen keyboard is just about 100% better than having a lolipop interface.

    That's as fast as the DS browser should have been!

    Ah well... Opera is awesome, Nintendo is awesome.. Can't go wrong.

    Yeah, the time taken by entering the web address is saved with the touchscreen, lol.

    Also, the browsing on the DSi seems much better than the PSP use-wise.

    I still prefer iPod touch'/iPhone's browser. I actually have the retail DS browser, no matter how embarrassing that is.

    What speed is the browser loading at? I remember the DSi announced as having b/g and the DS just having b. Also, doesn't the DSi have more internal RAM?

    Well, I was planning to get the DSi anyway (provided a working flashcart) so, this is actually pretty sweet, a much improved browser.

    DSi is faster, it's worth getting it if you use DS alot. It's like a mini PDA In a way.
