There are two variants of the DS browser cartridge for either the Nintendo DS or Nintendo DS Lite systems. Both variants are available on Nintendo.com, with the browser for Nintendo DS Lite also available at locations where video games are sold.
NDS Browser modes :
- Overview mode presents the complete Web site on the lower screen with the highlighted area zoomed in on the upper screen,
- Opera's Small-Screen Rendering combines the upper and lower screens to make a single screen.
Users of the Nintendo DS Browser can access all their favorite Web sites from Wi-Fi environments at home, at one of Nintendo's free Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection hotspots* and public access hotspots (subject to connection fees of the hotspot provider).
"With the DS Browser, Nintendo continues to expand the possibilities for users of this tremendously popular game platform," says Scott Hedrick, EVP Marketing, Opera Software. "Opera is excited to work with Nintendo to bring the easy and accessible way to browse the Internet to DS lovers in North America. DS Browser makes it easy to check news, popular user generated content sites or comparison shop while in a Wi-Fi hotspot."
Packaged just as a game cartridge, the DS browser is sold at an estimated retail price of $29.99.
