Dude, you gotta get one. I got one on import, had it a while now. Its excellent. Comfortable to use, a little on the big side. Battery life is ace, 8+ hours from a single charge.
Got Mario 84 DS, not very many games lined up. Its brill, cant believe I had not played on the N64, its such an excellent game. The sound from the DS is fab as well, and it plays my GBA games too, wheeeeeee.
So yes, touching is good.
Cant wait for the launch of the PSP as well !!!!.
