Nintendo DS Browser

So here I am slowly entering a blog post using my new Nintendo DS Browser. Forgive me for any mistakes, but using a virtual keyboard and a touch screen takes a bit of getting used to.

All in all I have to say the browsing capability is pretty weak, as each webpage takes an absolute age to load. It simply isn’t practical for general use, however if you are not at home and require access, it does do the job… just.

As mentioned, speed is my main concern and there seems to be no caching of images which doesn’t help either. Navigation isn’t that bad at all thanks to the wonderful touchscreen, but the small size of the screen really limits anything complex.

A nice addition for sure, but the slowness will annoy potential purchases of this product. Oh well, at least it is another new toy!
