Linux for the Nintendo DS
Well the new nintendo ds has enough power to probably make LInux work on it. I am not talking about a full fledged version, but maybe a partial version that you can use while you are on vacation to access the internet and stuff (wifi).
the system will have two processors, with an ARM-9 CPU running at 67MHz and an ARM-7 unit running at 33MHz. Retail DS devices will have 4Mb of main RAM (while debug development units will have double that), with additional chunks of cache and shared RAM for the processors and 656Kb of video RAM.
The system will possess decent 2D capabilities, but it also has a 3D graphics system which, the spec. claims, is capable of drawing 120,000 polygons per second, representing a fill-rate of 30 million pixels per second.
Inclusion of Wi-Fi and of a touch panel input device longer-range 802.11 protocol.
d-pad, four buttons (A, B, L and R) and Start/Select buttons),
The screens are marginally more high resolution than the GBA, with two 256 x 192 resolution panels included in the spec.
