Damn! not again, Nintendo have officially confirmed that they will launch another Nintendo DSi, called LL. Like the rumors been predicting NDSi LL have a screen of 4.2 inch that is almost 24% larger than the new DSI. It comes with a two type of stylus small and long ones. Perhaps the Dsi LL will reach out more to the older generation (mums and dad ).

Dsi LL also have slightly better battery life. For you who owned a DS lite maybe this is the time to upgrade.

The price tag will be 220 US or (22000 Yen) 3000 Yet cheaper then the PSP Go. Not sure if the price will be adjusted for North America release.
The Nintendo DSI LL will comes in four color; Black, Dark Brown, Wine Red and Natural White.

DSi LL, LL means Extra Large is a clothing size in Japan just like XL or XXL. Nintendo is no kidding, the weight of this console will be 348G that is heavier then the old PSP Phat which is 290G lol!!
