Skype says DSi support possible - Nintendo denies plans Since speculation started mounting about a 'DS Phone', attention turned toward the possibility of being able to use Skype with the more online-friendly DSi handheld console. Skype is already available for the PlayStation Portable (PSP) handheld console, and recently was brought to the iPhone and iPod Touch via the Apple App Store (for use with Wi-Fi).
"We have no plans to release a Skype application for Nintendo DS or DSi," a Nintendo rep told CVG. However, a spokesman for Skype said that the company's objective for the service was "extending the Skype infrastructure and platform to bring Skype functionality wherever, whenever, and on whatever device or site people choose to use it."

"Whilst we can't comment on any future plans to bring Skype to Nintendo's DSi, it would technically be possible," he continued.

The Nintendo DSI is a definite improvement over the older Nintendo DS because it has bigger dual screens and two integrated 640x480 cameras.

You will also like the integrated web browser because the touch screen and dual screens allow you to surf faster than on the Sony PSP.
