Ok, here is a copy pasta description:
Better take that Nintendo DS off your Christmas list.

Earlier this week, Nintendo unveiled the portable DSi, a machine that improves on the original in some ways, but won't be out in the U.S. until late next year.

What's in the DSi? Glad you asked.

The DSi's biggest change is the inclusion of two digital cameras, one on the outside and one on the inside.

The exterior camera is pretty meager at a mere 640x480 resolution, or 0.3 megapixels, really only useful for digital snapshots and nowhere close to the resolution of the mediocre cameras found on most modern cellphones.

There's also an interior camera that likely will be used for showing your face during a game against another DSi owner.

So the camera is kind of a gimmick, offering nothing that will make you want to toss your stand-alone digital camera, but it could make for some interesting gameplay possibilities.

The DSi will also include a music player and the ability to play back songs over SD memory cards an SD memory card slot is one of the other new features.

The DSi also has slightly larger screens than those on the regular DS.

So Nintendo is taking some timid steps in the multimedia world.

Remember, this is a company so reluctant to dabble in digital media other than gaming that the Wii doesn't even play back DVD movies even though the games are stored on DVD discs.

The DSi will be out in Japan before the holidays for about $180, but won't be out in the U.S. until late next year, possibly Christmas 2009.

So, should you wait for the DSi if you were planning to get a DS or DS Lite?

Probably.

There are drawbacks to waiting, though.

First, the DSi does not have a slot for older Game Boy Advance games.So if you're still playing some of your GBA titles, the DSi might not be for you.

Second, according to Nintendo, the DSi will have less battery life than the DS and DS Lite. One of my favorite aspects of the DS Lite is that I can leave it in my bag for weeks, and it will still have several hours of battery life when I flip it open.

Finally, a year is a long time to wait, assuming Nintendo is eyeing a holiday 2009 launch in the U.S.

But, if it were me, I'd wait.

The DSi will likely become the standard platform for developers before long, and while I am disappointed in the crummy specs on the cameras, I'm still curious to see how they'll be used in games.

So you might want to tell Santa that you'll take a rain check.
