    No, the DS only has legacy 802.11. I can only dream of a DS with GSM 1900MHz HSDPA.

    Would a bluetooth device in the Ds really cost that much?[​IMG] Seems like Nintendo is only aiming for kids under 10 with their handheld consoles. Even though they got more potensial like the psp.

    I gotta say, I'm impressed with the psp graphics.

    Well it hasn't been made yet, and I don't think that anyone's thought of that. However a DS bluetooth device would go in the GBA slot, right? And since the Opera browser only works with a Ram Pack/Flash cart, it'd kinda defeat its purpose, eh? Unless you wanna use a homebrew browser.

    Well, if EZflash can fit a rumble motor and the flash memory alongside the 8MBs of ram in the 3-in-1, I'm sure Nintendo could fit a GSM receiver in their cart along with the 8MBs of ram (or maybe more, which would be useful >_>)

    Nope, the 3in1 has 16MB worth of PSRAM. 32MB is for the NOR flash.

    Um..bluetooth doesn't do the DS any good. The network chip in it now has been chosen for 3 reasons. It's cheaper, it can connect to both other DSes and routers, and it has low power consumption.

    Exactly. Bluetooth, IMO, sucks power from a battery like a vampire sucks blood from a person
