Opera Software "The DS Browser ends up becoming a bullet point for the Nintendo DS system's capabilities. Yes, the Nintendo DS can now surf the internet. But after the novelty wears off, you probably won't want to", Craig Harris writes in his review. Craig was very kind to send us a DS screenshot rendering the mobile version of OSNews, although the browser seems to interpret "100%" of cell width as 800px wide instead of DS' 256px native resolution. Update: Craig sent us another shot, this time using the "small screen rendering" mode, which looked much better.

I have two Nintendo DS Lites (the previous model was too bulky for my liking) and Opera is currently my favourite desktop webbrowser.

My cellphone operator T-Mobile now has more than 600 free Nintendo hotspots in the Netherlands, hopefully this will further increase as browsing at home with a Nintendo DS instead of using my PC doesn't make much sense to me, but online gaming is nice though. But if I can freely browse the web for checking the latest news and my emails while travelling by train (airports are already supported) it would become an excellently useful feature to me. My cellphone's screen is just a bit too tiny and a laptop is not appealing for me for taking with me while i.e. going on vacation.
