Now that Macworld has played out, we're turning our rumoring prowess over to Nintendo and their possible DS update. The news comes from gamer importer Lik-Sang, stating that they're hearing from a "Japanese contact" that Nintendo will announce a NDS: SP on the 16th of this month. This comes in the wake of Reggie Fils-Aime's statement that a DS redesign was in the works, and jives with the word from Japan's Famitsu magazine stating that a current Nintendo console would be revised soon. SPOnG.com thinks Nintendo will go for a mix between an SP and a flip-phone form factor, and bring the VOIP action (DSpeak anyone?) with the update, but we'd just be happy for something a bit easier on the eyes and a few millimeters thinner.
