Opinion: US analyst claims DS Re-Lite is on the way but has he confused it with DS 2?

If you look at the longevity of the GBA, it was launched in March 2001 and, over six and half years later, is finally coming to the end of its life. The DS was launched at the end of 2004 and so by the same logic should be around until 2011.

DS was launched three-and-a-half years into the GBA's lifecycle, which, in turn, would see DS 2 emerging in the summer or autumn of 2008, right?

Could the supposed DS redesign leak actually be about a new console altogether?

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

Do you think they would make a DS 2, (same sorta thing ie. two screens, but maybe more powerful) or something completely different. I think they would go for the latter, what with Nintendo's innovating and all, but just wanna know what you's think.

I think that the next Nintendo handheld will share alot of the DS's characteristics - touchscreens (maybe multi-point), mic, wi-fi - but I think it will be branded differenttly and will have a new focus. Personally I would settle for something resembling a cross between a DS and a Gamecube with online access to the Virtual console and some of the other wii channels.

I really like what Nintendo has done with their online stuff, i.e. the wii channels and standardising them across multiple platforms would be very cool.
