New portable console Nintendo DSi LL came out in Japan

Monday, November 23, 2009

As expected, in Japan began selling a new portable game console Nintendo DSi LL. This device is more than the predecessor, though executed in the same clamshell form factor with two displays. Only two display at the Nintendo DSi LL - 4,2-inch. Dimensions of the new consoles are 161h91, 4h21, 2 mm, and weight - 314 grams, is 100 grams more than the DSi. In addition, DSi LL can operate on one battery charge for several hours longer than the previous model. So, at a minimum level of brightness of the display battery charge will last for 13-17 hours (9-14 hours with DSi), and at maximum brightness level - for 4-5 hours (3-4 hours at the DSi).

Otherwise, the new and old Nintendo consoles are almost identical. Both have built-in camera and microphone, as well as the same controls are located on either side of the lower display. Cost Nintendo DSi LL in Japan is 20 000 yen (about $ 220). It is assumed that the new game console will be released outside of Japan early next year and will be called the DSi XL, which symbolizes its larger size.
