Unboxing the Nintendo DSi
Posted on 19-Mar-2009 18:53 by M Freitas. | Tags Filed under: Reviews.

Earlier today I attended the New Zealand launch of the new Nintendo DSi and being one of the first to RSVP the invitation I also won one of three units there. In this photo review you will see the unboxing and setup of this new portable gaming console.

The Nintendo DSi comes with a 17% larger LCD screen, SD card memory slot, improved speakers and a slimmer unit. You can take photos of yourself or use the second camera in the front of the unit to photograph a friend - and use the software "lenses" to apply effects directly on the screen. The software also sports face recognition so some effects are shown in real time on the screen.

You can get online with the Nintendo DSi Browser - which will be available as a free download from the Nintendo DSi Shop when it launches on the 2nd April.

The Nintendo DSi Shop works with "tokens" called Nintendo Points Card. The Nintendo DSiWare will be available in four different categories: free, 200 points, 500 points, and 800 or more points.

All Nintendo DS software is compatible with Nintendo DSi, software that requires the Game Boy Advance cartridge slot, as this has been removed from this model.

The device will be available in Australia and New Zealand from 2nd April, and later on in Europe and the U.S.

Below is the unboxing of my unit:
