200k DSi units available at Japanese launch Nintendo has noted that they had shipped about 200,000 DSi units in anticipation of the Japanese launch of the console on Saturday.
The updated handheld is selling for JPY 18,900, the equivalent of $179 USD in the country.

The DSi features two cameras, improved audio functionality, a built-in web browser and an SD memory card slot along side a slightly larger screen.

Nintendo also added that they would be shipping another 100,000 units during the course of the week.

The company recently added that the handheld would hit North American and European markets in August 2009.

Still no GPS apps that would use a bluetooth GPS antenna won't work. No cell phone integration. No listening to your NDS through a bluetooth headphone. None of the other stuff really excites me. Oh, and I understand you lose GBA backwards compatibility.
