    What makes you say that? It just looks like every other NDS game ever. It most likely has the browser program on it.

    Badass. I like how the cartridges are upside down in the pictures though. [​IMG]

    I wonder if the GBA cart is has an interchangable housing or if you'll have to buy them seperately for each model.

    Oh, and Ramen: they had released some screenshots in their E3 press package.

    With the price of cartridges today, I'd guess they would have to sell a DS version and a DS lite version.
    Now, if Nintendo aren't greedy bastards for once (hahaha, oh wow), we might see two GBA cartridges in the same box, but do not count on it. Doesn't make much business sense.

    as you can see at gamefront.de there will definately be two seperate versions of the browser software available for sale - one for the normal ds and one for the ds lite. at least it's better than only one version which sticks out of your lite [​IMG]

    I assume it'll run just fine off a flash cart, until you want to download something or visit a site that's too big. It shouldn't take much to patch it to read and write off of the GBA side of things.
    When this thing comes out, I'm only putting one game on my 2G at a time, and leaving the rest for webbing.

    I can't imagine that browsing the web on a 256x192 screen is much fun...I wouldn't spend any money on that

    I'd buy it for the sake that it's available. however, the only thing i'll be using it for is check forums maybe and check the location of final exams XD (dont' wanna boot up laptop and check... it'll take 1.30min minutes)

    i must say tho, they shoudl make the DS WEP and WPA compatible so that it can be more convenient.

    also, anyone think this can be used as an expansion pack (thinking about N64 days) [​IMG] for more graphics intense games? XD

    The Nintendo DS supports WEP encryption, but it still does not support WPA/WPA2 encryption. [​IMG]

    Someone should be able to patch it so that it uses a flash card for the memory... Shouldn't be too hard but, who knows.

    Anyway, you can go visit my blog by clicking the link under my sig to read more about it [​IMG]

    Being able to browse the net using your handheld would be very handy. It saves you having to carry an extra PDA or laptop with you during travels. Also, your NDS will be fairly much immune to all vulnurabilities and malicious software that targets Windows [​IMG] It boots instantly too XD

    It's just too bad this software isn't built in like the PSP.

    Translated the little Q & A from the Nintendo site on my blog if anyone's interested. Just click on the link below my sig [​IMG]

    Seems there's no support for Flash, PDF, movies, sounds or anything else that requires plugins.

    Still good to use to check e-mails and browse the basic site I guess.

    As long as there's javascript, I think I'll be cool.
