    Been looking at this myself (missus got me a ds lite for my birthday). Its my understanding that they are not currently planning on a UK/EU release - but that shouldnt stop you importing the cart in from the far east.

    Though - looks like Nintendo have altered their position on this, the browser will be released here in the UK;

    Not seen the PSP browser and in reality I had no plans on buying a DS or PSP (my DS was a surprise gift) but I have to say that im pretty excited about this, it would be cool to be able to surf on my little DS whilst taking a break from new super mario bros. Looks like they have made good use of the DS's touch screen and I like the zoom function.

    Looks a lot better, but it's not all down to the browser as the multiple screens and touch screen help with that. Still, it's things like this that make me use their browser on my home and work PCs and PDA.

    Doesn't look half bad actually. Was surprised when the video started playing, looks useable and could definitely be a great feature which could come in very handy when 'on-the-go'..

    As said it definitely (by the looks of things) beats the PSP browser which was painstakingly awkward to use and make use of efficiently.

    Was thining of importing it - but I'll wait. The only thing about the little DS that bothers me is that you cant use TKIP on the router. All my networks use TKIP auth and I'd have to pull them back to use WEP to make good use of the DS wifi. I have a feeling that i'll do just this though when I get the browser...
