New DS Lite model "rumour and speculation"

Nintendo has responded to an analyst's claims that it has completed work on a new version of its DS Lite handheld, maintaining that it is "rumour and speculation and we are not commenting further."

Evan Wilson, from Pacific Crest Securities, is quoted in a GameSpot report as saying that the new model was "thinner, has on-board storage, and larger screens," and would lose the GBA port to accommodate the changes.

I think this could be true. Why because a couple weeks back there was a rumor that Nintendo would start selling GB & GBA games as downloadable software and they would work like the Wii with older games that you could download and play. So that is what the on-board storage is for. So soon there could be a DS service like the Wii soon.

Plus even though I still do not trust Surfer Girl she said there would be a new version of the DS in 09. So if might be this version or it might not.

But I think the idea of taking out the GBA slot is a smart move it helps future proof the next version of the DS and allows for the next version to be smaller in size.

wonder how it will actually look like... they pretty much need to keep the touchscreen... oh well, my current one will do for quite some time

The redesign will probably just have a larger screen and significantly larger buttons to cater to the elderly.
