    Subject kinda says all... according to Nintendo Power, Nintendo has confirmed that it'll be launching the Opera web browser in Japan sometime this June.

    A recent interview revealed a bit of info about how it'll function. And I quote:

    The browser is being released on a regular DS cart and is set to be priced at YEN 3800 (EURO 27 / GBP 18). For now it seems you can type in either Japanese or English. Anyone have plans to import? ;)
     
  2. If it's anything like the PSP web browser...then blech, no way.

    I have more confidence in Nintendo than I do in Sony, though, so I'll see. I still think I prefer my computer with a keyboard and mouse.

    Well since it's Opera and not a hashed up modulation of IE (which is what the PSP runs), I see no reason to worry at all.

    I agree. The touch screen will make things much easier to deal with than the PSP did, too.

    The price is pretty decent, and Alex made a good point about the advantages of using the browser if you have two DS' (which I will once I buy my DS lite). You can be playing a game on one (exm. Pokemon) and looking up reference info at the same time (exm. a PokeDex). Sitting in front of a PC can be distracting, and not all of us are fortunate enough to have our beds or comfy chairs/couches next to the screen/keyboard ^^

    Even if I don't get much usage out of something like this, I know I'll be buying it anyways. I'm a consumer whore for stuff like that :p

    I'd do it just cause the DS Lite looks so fucking much like a Pokedex. Lol.

    It's too tempting not to flip it open with the Pokedex already loaded in it and just pretend its the real deal.

  6. All this talk of DSs and Pokédexes led me to this 10-second Photoshop mockup of how I'd like to see DP handle the Pokédex. Maybe if it were awesome enough, we wouldn't even need online Dexes! Uh...yeah right.
