    'Eye' as in the DS Eye. With the camera?

    That's just my personal opinion.

    I figured, because it's a small "i", that it equals the i in iPod... But that's kinda cheap..

    My opinion is
    its for:
    "I'm expensive, wait for someone to buy one and tell you how I am first"

    Thats what I think.
    Besides, I'm getting an Open Pandora over this.

    My guess is for "interactive" too. Since it has cameras and the built-in browser.

    Does this mean that my original DS is no longer interactive? Does it just play movies and display books now?

    Wow, I never thought of it like that, I'd go with this, if not, then the "i" is like the "i" in almost all Apple products: I don't think it has a meaning.

    From the conference:

    So I'm guessing, the i is for I, me, myself, my own.
    It could also relate to the visible "eye" on the lid.
