A few days ago, I bought a DSi XL, which is the latest handheld videogame device. I think I mentioned getting a DSi when talking about digital devices last month.
Well, the DSi is mainly a videogame-playing device, but it also comes with some other standard handheld device features, like a camera and a microphone. That means it can take pictures and record sounds (for ten seconds in a row, oh boy!). It also has an SD slot (ie. place for you to put a memory card into), which you can use to copy photos and play music.
There's also a message program where you can send messages to other people with DSis, or to your Facebook or whatever, but it's the "select one letter at a time" scheme, where you have to wait two seconds in between each letter selection. It's not good for writing.
Question: Does the Internet work on it?
Answer: Kind of!
I ran the Internet program through the toughest challenge it's ever faced: going to this blog. The blog entries came out perfectly fine! The pictures? Not so much. When I tried going to a website that has a lot of pictures (Facebook), the Internet started dying, and I couldn't do much of anything.
Conclusion: Internet is very good, if you only want to read text.
And you know, I don't mind using it for just reading books and stories and stuff. It's pretty handy to have a handheld book reader, in case I ever need one. Mainly, though, I'm going to use my DSi for playing videogames, because that's what it's made for.
