New DS with Pictures, Music Playback: Fact or Fiction?

I knew this was going to happen.

There I go and buy a Nintendo DS in August, only to have Nintendo announce a new, sexier DS with a camera, music playback capabilities, and an improved wi-fi.

Or so I thought.  While Nintendo has pointed out that the article from Nikkei Net that first reported the new DS didn’t interview them, they also refused to deny the redesign, saying only that they are always developing new products, and havn’t made any official announcements.

So what’s the deal?  Is another DS redesign imminent?  It makes sesnse for Nintendo in my view.  They tend to do a few redsigns for their handheld products (*cough* gameboy *cough*), and it only makes sense to make some improvements to compete with companies like Apple.

I guess we’ll have to wait for anything official from Nintendo, but don’t be surprised when and if Nintendo unveils it.
