    It seems like a perfect bday gift for my bro, but I wanna know if there are any major flaws. I'm sure that you have to be in a wi/fi hotspot for it to work. Help would be much appriciated. It's gotta be ok at the best, my bro is leaving for college a year early and I'm sure he'd like that since we can't afford a laptop. Again, I need to know if there are any major flaws and if it's worth the thirty bucks. Thanks in advance.

    The idea of the portable browser is great,its just the DS's hardware limitations to cripple it. The system just doesnt have the power to run it properly. Apparently its very very slow to use,and judging from how much I dislike browsing on the PSP,I can only imagine how bad it would be on the DS.

    I would avoid at all costs,lol

    The DS browser is shockingly slow IMO. I was expecting better out of it. :(

    It doesn't support any type of audio or video, either.

    it feels like a piece of homebrew being sold as a complete product. my wife has it and she likes it for checking her facebook while she's laying in bed at night so she doesn't have to go downstairs.
