Nintendo DS Opera Browser released in Europe

In what actually amounts to a short delay compared to many launches, European users of Nintendo’s DS now can get their hands on the Opera web browser that Japanese owners have been surfing with since February this year.  £30 (or €40) gets you the much-vaunted browser which can operate in two-modes – either stretching a webpage across both top and bottom displays, or showing the full page on one display and a magnified section on the other. 

An on-screen keyboard and handwriting recognition takes care of URL and other text entry, adding just one more feather to the cap of Nintendo’s flourishing handheld.  There are two versions of the browser, for the original DS and the DS Lite, both cartridge based and neither, sadly, supporting Flash.
