The Nintendo DS is coming out and i want to know one thing! THE DS has Wi-Fi right? well will there be a outlet in the DS where you stick the internet cord in for the DS? I'm going to buy it and go online.
Not that I've heard about.
no it is wireless.
It has bluetooth and wireless capability. Meaning you have to be within 50 feet or so of either a bluetooth or wireless source. Its silly that they didn't put a modem in it. At least with the N-Gage you can play against anyone, from anywhere if you have a phone plan.
I was just wondering if anyone knew the specs of the Nintendo DS because if so it may well be easier, if feasible, to get a emulated version to run on an iPaq... Edit, I just did my research and got this as specs: CPU Core Main Processor - ARM946E-S (Running at 67 MHz) Cache: 8 KB Instruction Cache, 4KB Data Cache TCM: 8KB Instruction, 4KB Data Sub Processor - ARM7TDMI (Running at 33 MHz) Memory Main Memory - 4 MB (Debug version has 8 MB) ARM9/ARM7 Shared - 32KB (16KB x 2) ARM7 Internal RAM - 64 KB VRAM - 656 KB LCD Display Size - 256 x 192 RGB Screens x 2 Display Colors - 262,144 colors 2D Graphics Engine Background - Maximum 4 layers Objects - Maximum of 128 3D Graphics Engine Geometric Transformation - Max 4 million vertex/sec Polygon Rate - Max 120,000 polys/sec Pixel Fillrate - Max 30 million pixels/sec Sound 16 channel ADPCM/PCM (Max 8 channels can be set to PSG) Microphone input Wireless Communication 802.11 Protocol Input Device Touch Panel Direction Pad, A, B, L, R buttons, Start, Select (X, Y buttons being considered) Power Save Sleep mode (WakeUp possible at set times or by wireless communication) Power save for 2D engine, rendering engine, geometry engine, LCD screen possible. It's appparent that the DS WILL have wifi capabilites seeing as it has 802.11 protocol which is the same as that used in WiFi. It also seems apparrent that emulation will be easy seeing as it only runs at 67Mhz on an ARM processor and all new PDAs run at ≥200Mhz on an ARM processor.
What's an Ipaq?
Wonder what the battery life on the DS is with wi-fi turned on. I know it drains the crud out of the psp battery.
Steel ReserveWhat's an Ipaq?
