Detailed review
The Nintendo DSi is a good concept, but that's where it stops gaining my attention. The game library is not that good, as most of the games are designed for an age range of 7-12 years of age. Graphics are mid-range. Battery lasts at least 4 hours. Fits great in a pocket. The outer shell is prone to scratches, fingerprints, and dents.
