A New Nintendo Handheld
Wedbush Morgan’sMichael Pachter stated that:
The successor to the Nintendo DS could be introduced as early as this year, bringing with it the potential to spur even more growth for Nintendo. We think that the timing of a new product introduction will depend upon the sales profile for the DS, and believe that lower than expected DS hardware sales could trigger an earlier launch for the new device.
DS sales are solid worldwide, but are weak in Japan, leading us to expect an introduction of a new device in Japan before the end of the calendar year.
Slightly misleading, I wouldn’t bet that we will see the so called device, if but only through hopefully images around the web. Unfortunately I can’t spare a trip to Japan later in the year, just like everything else that we see come out in Japan… we’ll have to wait.
