DailyTech previously reported that Nintendo had selected
Opera as the browser of choice for its Wii gaming console. Opera Software has announced that it has set a July 24th launch date
for the browser on the Nintendo DS platform in Japan. When the browser launches in Japan,
it will be priced at around 3,800 yen or about $33 USD.
There was no date specified for US or European launches of
the Opera DS browser, but more details will be revealed on our around the
launch in late July. If you may recall, Opera Software just recently released its
Opera 9 web browser for Windows, Apple and Linux platforms. That release brought about some nifty
features like native BitTorrent support and widgets.
July 24th should be a rather big day in the tech industry -- AMD's new price cuts will go into effect on that date in response to Intel's July 23rd Conroe ship date.
quote: I'm still waiting for WPA support for the DS and it will probably come right after hell freezes over. I mean how hard was it to add the WPA software? I'm relatively sure that it wasn't a hardware issue as most, if not all, wireless chipsets have WPA support these days. So I probably won't be buying their browser because I don't want to use WEP on my wlan.
