We've had a browser for months now, so... what is your point?

A web browser should work well on the DS since you can use the stylus to browse. A TV tuner on the other hand is not a good idea. Watching TV on that low res DS display is worthless.

just like watching TV on low res non HD TVs is worthless right? I suppose the 50 million non-HD TV owners should just throw their TVs out right?

yeah but our browser has a touch screen. nay nay.

The DS has a screen resolution of 256X192 with the ability to display 260K colors... much lower than your average SD television. The DS screen might be good for gaming but it will do a lousy job at displaying full motion TV content.

Yes but the PSP has a much bigger (widescreen) and higher res screen for internet browsing.

Yes so in other words the DS has some advantages with regards to internet browsing compared to the PSP and vica-versa.

Besides, what is this "we get to use a mouselike touchscreen" comment? I can't use my DS to browse the internet?

Actually, to use the mouse pointer in the browser we have an analog stick, which works in very much the same way as normal anaolg sticks in the center of laptop keyboards, i's a pretty familiar format. The DS simply doesnt have the screen resolution to be an effective web browsing device.

yeah right. Analog stick as mouse = extremely gay. Touchscreen = better than mouse. DS dosen't have enough resolution? It has two 256 x 192 screens. So total that is like 256x384. Ie 98,304 pixels. PSP has 368x207 = 76,176 pixels. Looks like the DS beats out the PSP in resolution as well.

Analog stick as mouse = extremely gay because it is on a Sony product and not your DS.

And who in the crap wants to browse the internet looking up website across TWO low res, crappy screens? Your logic sucks, man.

Fanboys should get there facts straight before posting. The PSP has a total screen resolution of 480x272 or 130,560 pixels. The PSP can also display 24bit color or 16.77 million colors.

zelda fan you obviously never seen a psp in your hands otherwise you would never say the psp screen has less pixel/color than your DS. the psp screen is very sexy save for a little ghosting and is widescreen.
