Wii browser on Dec. 22nd

The long-promised web browser for the Nintendo Wii will be available December 22nd, the company has announced. Initially disappointing some gamers, the Wii did not come with Opera - or several other Internet components - when the console launched on November 19th. The Wii version of Opera will finally be ready this week, a free download from the Wii Shop Channel until June, when it will cost 500 Wii Points. Also going live soon (tomorrow, in fact) is the Forecast Channel, which will provide weather information from around the world by browsing list of cities, or scrolling around a 3D globe. Notably, however, the Wii will still be missing the News Channel, which is expected January 27th.
