Nintendo DSi XL Can Handle eBooks

nintendodslite.pngRetailing for $189.99 and coming in both burgundy and bronze editions, the Nintendo DSi XL will help the gaming company grab a spot in the eBook universe.

The new device will launch with a stylus, a screen 93 percent larger than the Nintendo DS Lite model (pictured), and special eBook package. According to the company, the new device will launch March 28.

Here’s more from eBookNewser: “In June, according to BusinessWeek, the company will introduce ’100 Classic Books,’ a collection of public domain works for reading on the DSi XL. The collection will cost $19.99. Obviously, this is a move to avoid being eclipsed by Apple’s iPad, which will be used by many–as are the iPhone and iPod Touch–to play games, most likely more sophisticated ones that its smaller cousins can handle.”
