Nintendo goes patent crazy for DSi

It seems like we might have a fair bit to look forward to from Nintendo's DSi, if the patent filings are anything to go by anyway.

Ahead of the release of Nintendo's new handheld in the US and Europe next year, Nintendo has patented a wide range of DS-related titles that may just hint at what the company has in store for us in the future.

The patents, which were filed between September 30th and October 1st this year hint towards several interesting avenues for the console, such as DSNavi, perhaps some sort of sat-nav software, DSPhone and DSiMovie.

The full list is below. Which do you think we might see from this little lot?
