Who to give it to: The nonretro gaming geek
The upgraded version of the Nintendo DS, the Nintendo DSi ($US169, Walmart.com) is an MP3 player, a camera, an Internet browser, and a storage device all in the body of a handheld gaming device. It features Wi-Fi, two built-in cameras, two 3.25-inch screens, and an SD storage slot. How could a geek not lust after it? It's a great gift for anyone who likes Nintendo games, enjoys snapping funny photos, appreciates music, or wants to browse the Internet without hauling around a laptop or netbook. Of course, gift givers might want to hold out for the rumored Nintendo DSi XL, which will have a larger screen and may hit stores before the end of 2009.
