Nintendo has announced plans to roll out a new portable gaming console that has not only dual processors, but also a pair of display screens. The Nintendo DS will feature two 3" LCD screens, two processors, and up to 1 gigabit (not gigabyte) of memory. Sadly, it appears that Nintendo isn't going with RAID for the device, which will reportedly play movies and music in addition to games.
Nintendo will release more details on the DS at this year's E3 expo, giving pundits plenty of time to guess at the device's capabilities and potential applications. Personally, I'd love to see what developers who are porting Linux to the GameCube could do with Nintendo's little dually.
