Update: The Internet did get it right about the camera, but were a bit off about everything else. It may not all be as earthshattering as some were hoping, but according to GameDaily.com, there are some worthwhile additions.

The new DS looks a lot like the old one but with some significant changes: it's 12% thinner than the DS Lite, and will include a built-in 3 megapixel camera that sits on top of the system and a smaller 0.3 megapixel camera in between the two screens. The screens are also slightly larger–going from 3 to 3.25 inches, and will include an SD card slot.

How will the smaller DSi be able to accommodate all of these new wiz bang gadgets? Well, it gives by taking away. In this case, the big Game Boy Advance card slot will be no more. This might come as a shock to GBA loyalists, but no worry, Nintendo says it considers the DSi a third platform and, if the company's console history teaches us anything, the DS Lite won't go away anytime soon.
