Nintendo DS

Web Browser and TV tuner coming for the DS


At Nintendo’s conference in Japan they unveiled two key features for the Nintendo DS. The first has been widely predicted, a web browser based on Opera. The browser is designed to take advantage of the DS’ Wifi connectivity and the touch screen for character input. Instead of being a firmware update like the PSP browser, it will be sold a separate piece of software. A price has not been announced, but Nintendo plans to release the browser software in June. The TV tuner can be plugged into the DS’ card slot. This is a better design than the previously announced bulky TV Tuner. Note that the TV Tuner will only work in Japan. A TV tuner for the USA has not been announced yet.
