Nintendo Japan announced the DSi today, the newest version of their handheld gaming system.

As with the DS Phat (Old Fat version of the DS), we can expect the DS Lite (Newer Thin versions that are currently in stores) to come out of production shortly as well. Perhaps its time for me to sell mine :)

New Features of the DSi:

* No longer has a Gameboy Advance Cartridge slot
* Larger displays at 3.25″ each
* 3 Megapixel Camera on the back
* Additional front facing camera on the front hinge
* SD Card slot and internal storage

 
The new DSi is scheduled to launch in Japan November 1st, the rest of us will have to wait till next year to get our hands on this shiny new toy.
