Nintendo announced the launch of the Nintendo DSi in Europe on 3 April 2009 and Pocket-lint has already grabbed one for a photo shoot.

The main difference with the new version is that the DSi will have two 3.25-inch screens (17% larger than the current model) and will get a .3-megapixel camera built-in as well as a SD card slot.

And compared to the very first Nintendo DS, looks decidedly "hardcore" with its matt black finish.

The Nintendo DSi will be available in black or white, it seems UK pricing will be around the £150 mark with HMV offering pre-orders for £146.80 with free delivery.
