What Does “i” Stand For In Nintendo DSi?


As many of you are well aware, the Nintendo DSi will be making its way to the United States on April 5.  But why is there an “i” in the new version and why is it lowercase?  Does Nintedo want to capitalize on the success of the lower case “i” that Apple has been having?  Nope.

Nintendo stated that the “i” is symbolic to the subject of “I” and the personal aspect.  Since there is also two cameras in the DSi, Nintendo gives the system its own “eye” on things.  This came directly from a Nintendo representative.

    Why does the DSi only come in two different colors black and blue why not pink? Are you going to add DSi’s in different colors? Because if your not then I’m not going to buy one?
