Is Nintendo Working on a DSphone?


Nintendo has patented a number of DS-related titles that could offer a sneak peek at the plans the firm has for its updated Nintendo DSi in Europe, Mobile Entertainment reports.

“The eclectic list points to all sorts of possible software, or even hardware, releases for the machine over the coming years, with hints towards sat-nav software, movie downloads, mobile telephony, email, TV and e-books clear to see.”

In other words, Nintendo could be planning to push its DS platform in the same direction that Sony has already done with the PSP, and that Apple is already doing with the iPod Touch—everything except actual cellular calls.
