Everyone's trying to slim down in time for summer – Nintendo included. Witness the newly debuted DS Lite ($129.99), a smaller, sleeker and generally better designed model of the popular DS handheld, which improves upon its predecessor in almost every...

Enhanced portability; Brighter screen; Revamped button layout; Slimmer weight

Case prone to smudging; GBA games stick out; Where's the light switch

The Nintendo DS Lite ($129.99 list), announced in January, has finally arrived in the U.S. It's not so much a revolutionary device as it is a better version of the Nintendo DS (for dual screen), which was a pretty terrific portable game device already.

The Nintendo DS Lite is slimmer and much sleeker that the original DS. The device employs innovative dual-screen and microphone-enabled gameplay as well as Wi-Fi multiplayer capabilities, allowing for a growing list of original and fun games that you...

Playing online games via Wi-Fi can be a hassle. The darker models are just as susceptible to scratches and smudges as the Sony PSP and the iPod, and its multimedia potential remains exclusive to Japan

With a slick new design, brighter screens, and a growing library of fun and innovative games, the Nintendo DS Lite is an impressive improvement over the original DS.

After spending 10 minutes with the original Nintendo DS I could just tell that a redesign was already in the works. The technology aspects of the system were rock solid, but many of the cosmetic design elements were severely lacking. This month saw the...
