The new gaming system will come with 2 cameras, music functionality, and be even thinner

Following rumors that had been circulating throughout the last week, Nintendo confirmed reports that it was giving its best-selling handheld gaming console, the Nintendo DS, a facelift.  Nintendo President Satoru Iwata was on hand to announce the new unit at Nintendo's Fall Press Conference.  With the new handheld, Nintendo looks to continue in its successes thinking outside the usual gaming box.

The new unit, called the "DSi" will keep the trademark double-screen (DS), while expanding the screens to 3.5 inches, a 17 percent increase in size.  Like Apple's iPods, Nintendo is cramming more into a smaller space, fitting the jumbo new screens into a package that's 12 percent thinner than the previous DS.  The general look of the handheld is otherwise relatively unchanged, with the stylus being perhaps slightly larger.
