4" screen expected with updated model
A report originating from the Japanese financial newspaper Nikkei claims that Nintendo is readying an updated DSi featuring a 4-inch display. If true, the revamped device would exceed the current model's screen by ¾ of an inch. The company is reportedly making the adjustment in response to user feedback, while accommodating older users who have complained of problems using the smaller size.
The updated DSi is said to be heading for the Japanese market later this year for ¥18,900 (~$205 USD). It is unclear if the company plans to bring the new device to the North American market. [via Shacknews and NeoGaf]
