The Nintendo DS LTE

That's right, a handheld with data. I feel like urs getting more and more difficult for handhelds to compete with smartphones, so why not adopt their strategy by selling a subsidized loss leader device. So with a purchased data plan, the device would only be around 50 dollars, this would allow it to compete with smartphones in the area of price.

Nintendo's really pushed online well on their handhelds, so the idea of being able to play online anywhere sounds great.

Of course they'd also have a wi-fi model.

Thoughts?

And then casuals will confuse it with a DS Lite and say "what's the point of that? I already have a 3DS. Why would Nintendo start making the Lite again?"

Basically what is happening with the Wii U right now "I don't want an expensive tablet accessory for my Wii."

More Zelda U info please.

That's pretty important and needs to be addressed. I think that's the next logical step for handheld devices if they want to stay competitive. The iPhone had beefy hardware, but poor design with the lack of buttons. Nintendo has a chance to make a device that is intended for games and be modern

It wasn't meant to be the actual name, more of just the name of the idea.

The Vita's 3G, as far as I hear, isn't for online gaming, and it's not loss leader subsidized.

I can already tether my 3DS to my phone if I absolutely have to get online anywhere. Why is this necessary?
