DS browser in action

Thursday 20 July 2006
The first footage of new DS browser Opera running on the Nintendo handheld has surfaced in preparation for the software's launch in Japan on 24 July.

The DS browser has been designed by Opera Software which makes use of the handheld's WiFi connectivity. Opera allows both screens to be used to view one web page, or to use the top screen for a zoomed-in view that can be navigated with the stylus on the bottom, touch-screen. There's also a keypad option for the bottom screen so users can enter text.

UK gamers will have to wait until October to get connecting to the net with their DS's.
