Summary: This is excellent for when I need to go wireless and don't want to carry my heavy laptop with me. I'm wondering why it's not really sold anymore, maybe because of liability? Maybe because it's as fast as a 56k? I'm used to the 56k speed though. Just go to the mobile version of the websites. I could check my google, hotmail, ebay, wikipedia, and other simple sites easily. I could not check my facebook or other sites that use a lot of flash and java.
Summary: I got this product the other day thinking, what the heck - it looks pretty cool. I figured it would be the "DS Version" of the internet. But wow! I was awestruck at the amazingly similar resemblance in page layout to what a laptop or home computer would normally display. Pictures, links, everything was right where it should be making it an easy temporary adjustment from your laptop when you want to lounge around your house without a computer.
Summary: The Nintendo DS Lite Browser has become a very handy tool for me while traveling. I've seen many bad reviews about how it has no support for Flash and no video viewing. But honestly, it really isn't for surfing the internet for a long time! If you just need something to check your email while away, or short browsing of the internet while you are away from the computer, it is perfect!
Summary: Given the limitations of the DS platform (slow processor, small screen, little memory), this is an awesome browser. Having used browsers for Pocket PC, Windows Mobile, and Sony PSP, this is the only one I've seen that renders complex pages correctly. The New York Times home page is laid out accurately, and, unlike the Windows Mobile version of IE, it can display radar imagery from the US National Weather Service site.
Summary: I have been watching the news on new Nintendo DS games and peripherals. Once I found out that an internet browser was being released for the DS I became instantly interested in such a program, watching the news of it unfold. From he time I found out when it's release date was in Japan I watched for a US release like a hawk.
Summary: The Nintendo Web browser has a slight learning curve, and screen refreshes were slow compared to a laptop, so I would not recommend it if you are in a hurry. However, the small size of the Nintendo DS Lite makes it convenient to carry around, and useful for traveling, and the unit & browser cost around $170 which is less than a laptop. It also works well with home wireless routers. Lists of free compatible WIFI hotspots in Canada and the US can be found at: [...
