No bluetooth...no GBA support...no thanks.

There's a project for GPS support for the NDS which would be an awesome app for it, but I believe the board necessary plugs into the GBA slot (DS Serial board).

You get a camera, internet browser (the current open products are really unuseable except in a crunch), microsd slot for multimedia files, a larger screen, and likely a more professional looking media player than Moonshell.

...for $50 more.

I'd be willing to accept the no-GBA slot if the new one had bluetooth.
