Nintendo DS is a portable game console released in 2004. The device features a clamshell design. Inside the clamshell are two LCD screens, one on the bottom and one on the top. The bottom display is touch screen enabled and interfaced using a stylus, much like a PDA. The DS also includes Wi-Fi for multiplayer gaming either with other local DS players or over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection on the Internet.
The button layout is much like that of the Super Nintendo, with a directional pad on the left and A, B, X, and Y buttons on the right. There are also L and R shoulder buttons on the upper corners of the DS. The DS speakers feature virtual surround sound and the DS's built-in microphone adds a variety of functionality.
The device is 5.85 x 3.33 x 1.13 inches and weighs 9.7 ounces. The LCDs are 3-inch screens offering 256 x 192 resolution. The DS is powered by a 67 MHz ARM processor and a 33 MHz ARM co-processor. The DS offers compatibility with Game Boy Advance cartridges, but not original Game Boy or Game Boy Color.
This stock represents the lifetime worldwide sales of the original DS and its derivatives including the DS Lite.
