Internet Browsing, TV Tuning Planned for DS

Thought the Nintendo DS was only good for games? Well, you’d be wrong after Nintendo releases their web browser in June. The Web browser, developed with Norway’s Opera Software, will be sold as a DS card. This would make the Nintendo DS more competitive with the PlayStation Portable, which already has built-in web browsing capabilities.

Trying to appeal to more than just hardcore gamers should also be made easier with the digital television receiver that Nintendo announced today, which will be out by the end of the year. No details about the receiver are known other than that a card with an antenna will enable owners to watch television programs. “These products propose a different use for the DS in entirely new fields,” Nintendo President Satoru Iwata told a news conference.
