    Does it support SDHC (SD v2.0) or just SD (Secure Digital)?

    I see another symbol on the R button, is this the cameras shutter button.

    Do not like the contours of the dsi.

    @nitro_rev: Perhaps, but L button for camera shutter would make more sense.

    The shutter buttons are on both L and R in case some are left-handed.
    I supposed it’s only standard SD to reduce the cost.

    Also, the exterior hardware itself is very hard and tough much like the material used for the Wii Remote.

    hey, how will the music thing work? I read it only plays back AAC
    format. do any of you know how you would get music on there? and I
    also read that the SD card has I don’t remember if it was 2GB or 3GB.
    but I can’t wait for it, and you can also record your voice and mix it up, it’s pretty sweet, another reason for which I can’t wait ’till Summer!

    @ Vic – Open up the music program, then open up the AAC files to play them. The best ways to make music files in AAC format is to use iTunes (the format for that program). Copy the songs to an SD card, then put the card into your DSi. Yes, you can record up to like 10-20 seconds (I believe) of your own voice.
