Nintendo DSi handheld gaming console will be released on April 5 in the US. The DSi has been available in Japan since November, and within the first two days 170,779 units were sold, amounting to more than 85% of the initial shipment, according to Enterbrain. To connect to Wi-Fi to use the new app store or to play online games, the DSi includes support for WPA security. The DS and DS Lite did not support any security above WEP, so older games reportedly still must connect via WEP to play online, despite the DSi's support for WPA.

The DSi incorporates two cameras into the unit, which offers developers yet another kooky way to control games.
