Nintendo's DS Lite: superseded soon?

Gaming website Gamespot said that Evan Wilson, an analyst at investment bank Pacific Crest Securities, told investors that "contacts indicate that a refreshed DS is complete".

Wilson said his moles told him the revamped DS Lite will be thinner, lack support for Game Boy Advance cartridges, offer on-board storage and have larger displays.

However, Wilson urged caution to anyone anticipating an imminent release of the redesigned handheld console: he doesn’t expect the new DS Lite to go on sale until “sales begin to tail off in all three major geographies” - Japan, Europe and the US.
