DSi sales in Japan top 500,000 for the month According to recent data from Enterbrain, Nintendo's latest handheld, the DSi, sold 535,379 units in Japan for the month of November, its first full month of sales.
The handhelds' predecessor, the DS Lite, sold 550,000 units in its first month.

Overall, Nintendo's star performing console has sold just under 25 million units to date.

The handheld will not be reaching Europe or North America until at least April however, with Nintendo hoping the DS Lite will sell well during the holidays.

What are you really getting for an extra $40? Not a whole lot IMO.

If it had bluetooth, that would be a real reason to purchase this.
