Not sure how much you know or don't know. It's a Nintendo DS Lite, a handheld console-type game playing machine. Price has held steady at $129 for the past seven months. I had originally told DH I'd like a Nintendo DS to play Brain Age (and maybe some other games...) But he surprised me with a DS Lite. We had so much fun we ran right out and bought him one also. We can play head to head wirelessly (not all games, just some.)
He plays Mario Kart on his and plays WiFi with people from all over. I like Texas Hold 'Em and Snood and the thinking games. I just bought the Internet Browser software yesterday. Within moments DH was reading his e-mail and looking at the online album of pix I had posted of our trip to San Diego. Within minutes of finally registering my DS online I was reading my own blog. It read down the posts first, then down the sidebar. You can click on links, etc. Was extremely easy to set-up with our wireless network.
The only drawback is the software does not support video or audio. No listening to Internet Radio. Bummer. But maybe they'll work on that.
