    How is internet surfing with the DSI? Is it still on slow side like I read on the DS Lite? Does it play flash?

    It's marginally faster (barely) than the original Opera on the DS. And no, it does not play flash.

    While the DSi's browser is slightly quicker and more responsive I've found that it's still too slow to really be usable. I may be biased though because I also have an iPod Touch and the safari browser on that is very impressive.

    Good thing the DSi's browser is free though because I probably wouldn't purchase it if it cost money.

    The DSi is limited from Flash for the simple reason of the memory factor. While other things like the psp and the ipod touch have over 64mb of memory, the DSi has a mere 16mb.
