    Nintendo also filed a trademark application for “Friends Collection” which lets you interact with Mii's from Nintendo heads like Shigeru Miyamoto, Satoru Iwata, and Reggie Fils-Aime represented by Miis.

    You can't exactly read the news source since it's in Japanese but..here. This is my translation though.

    DSphone and DSmobile=Never coming to the US

    A lot of these apps are either going to end up having a homebrew variant, never leave the drawing board or prototype stage, and/or be Japan only. I want DSfamily though because I would like communicate with my cousins which all have a DS. I wonder what the DSfriend would be like maybe we can create a friend to talk to via DS.

    Most are just to make sure that no one calls their own devices those names.

    Like DSeye, I reckon that's just to prevent a copycat games machine. If its related to the camera, it'll just sound like a Eyetoy rip.

    I'm betting DS Speak will work in collaboration with Wii Speak.

    I hope DSPhone is real but I doubt it. If it is, I wonder how it's going to work though, considering how Nintendo hates collecting monthly fees, which would mean no SSvIP (Unless they either make a free service for it or they get some company to do it).

    If those are real (that I believe that are not) half of them wont come to America and all of them won't come to Europe

    None of them will be used anywhere, it's just if anyone does, they can be sued!
