Good news for all you crazy kids waiting in eager anticipation
for the Nintendo DSi's Stateside release
. According to very scientistic benchmarks conducted by the folks over at N+
, the up-and-coming handheld's Opera browser not only loads the New York Times
website much faster than the DS Lite
does, but it's clever enough to start with the text -- giving you something to read while you wait for pictures of the war torn Gaza Strip to materialize (and bum you out on an otherwise beautiful Monday afternoon). Unlike the DS Lite, Opera for the DSi is free, and it can be saved directly to the device's internal memory. No fuss, no muss -- right? But don't take our word for it, we've been kind enough to provide a video for your after the break.
