Hands on with the Nintendo DSi

The Nintendo DSi is the successor to the DS Lite. The DSi features two larger screens, two 0.3-megapixel cameras, and an SD card storage slot. Priced at $180, the DSi will go on sale in North America on April 4.

Last October we told you about a successor to the DS Lite, the Nintendo DSi. The DSi features two larger screens, two 0.3-megapixel cameras, and an SD card storage slot. In addition, the new DSi will allow users to download software and add-ons over the Internet from a specially designed DSi store.

The editors at CNET sister-site GameSpot were able to get their hands on a DSi and performed an in-depth analysis of the device as well as a physical comparison to the DS Lite. Check out some select photos from their feature in our slideshow .

While the DSi is already on sale in Japan (which is where GameSpot snagged the model shown here), we still don't have a definitive release date for North America beyond the vague label of "2009." However, online chatter points to an April release along with a $180 price tag although those details have yet to be confirmed by Nintendo.
