Leave it to to use a review of the Nintendo DS gaming system to prod PDA manufacturers to incorporate more cutting-edge technology. They point out that the Nintendo DS has features like:

  • built-in Wi-Fi,
  • dual ARM processors,
  • dual LCD screens,
  • chat collaboration software,
  • a stylus, and
  • a built-in microphone

… all for a price of around $149. Of course, they can probably afford to price a gaming platform very aggresively because they’re going to make money on the games that customers buy. Hey wait a minute, isn’t that the rationale that the wireless carriers use to subsidize mobile handsets? Hmm….
