    NDS Nintendo Explains What the "i" in "DSi" Means

    There is no "i" in team. There is one in your new Nintendo handheld. (There's two in "Wii", but I digress.) GoNintendo asked Ninty straight up what's with the I, and got an answer.

    Nintendo insists it's not-follow-the-leader of Apple branding "i" on any must-haveable small gadget that exudes 2.0 coolness. Rather:


    • The "i" is symbolic of the subject "I" and its personal aspect.
    • Plus, the addition of two cameras gives the system its own "eye" on things.

    "Nintendo hope that the Nintendo DSi becomes more than a game system and more of a personal tool to enrich our daily lives."

    GoNintendo says that comes directly from a Nintendo rep.

    So essentially Nintendo wants to make the DSi a CFW PSP.

    I always thought the i was for "integrated" there was a phase when all phones had an i on the end it meant it had an integrated camera.

    If I wanted a personal tool to enrich my daily life I'd get an iPhone.
