Hey, Neo-nites. It's no secret that a huge chunk of the Neoseeker community are young'uns who really dig Nintendo and Pokemon. So it might interest many of you to learn that Nintendo has just announced a NEW handheld: the DSi LL.

Thanks to Dany for the tip and his Japanese skillz. Hey, I'm Asian but I do not speaketh the Nipponese. Anyway, we now know a few things about the new DSi LL, the most interesting fact imo being its heft; the LL will be heavier and bigger than the first DS -- you know, the thing that looked like an old Game Boy chopped in half then clued together at the edges. The DSi LL will, however, have a longer battery life than the original DSi, though it'll also take an extra half-hour to charge. Here's an excerpt from our front page news, translated off the official Japanese Nintendo DSi LL website:
Japan's favorite manufacturer has just announced the DSi LL, a new and supposedly improved DS. So far we know it is larger than the original DS, boasts an improved battery life over the first DSi, and comes with a 4.2" screen and new pen stylus. I won't even mention what I think that looks like...

A more detailed analysis shows the DSi LL, aside from having a somewhat awkward name, actually weighs 314 grams or over half a pound, making it the heaviest DS. Aside from weight, the LL will also be larger than the original DS in length and width, but slimmer from the side.
