Nintendo Preps DS Lite

While Nintendo is working away on a new GameBoy design, the company also recently confirmed that it will soon update its Nintendo DS handheld game machine with a new model dubbed DS Lite. The DS Lite will feature a smaller form factor than it predecessor and be available in an iPod-like white enclosure; the company says both of these factors led to the new name. Like the original DS, the new model will play all GameBoy Advance and DS titles, and will utilize a two-screen, clamshell design. It should ship to Japan in March and to the United States later this year. No word yet on pricing
