The Nintendo DS Lite is a dual-screen handheld game console developed and manufactured by Nintendo. It is a slimmer, more lightweight redesign of the earlier Nintendo DS model, styled to make it more appealing to a variety of gaming audiences. It was announced on January 26, 2006, more than a month before its first territorial launch in Japan on March 2, 2006 due to overwhelming demand for the original model. It has been released in Japan, Australia, and North America, with the European launch set for June 23, 2006, where it is available in "Jet Black" as well as the United State's and Japan's "Polar White". Just two days after Nintendo DS Lite went on sale in the United States on June 11, the new lighter, brighter portable system sold more than 136,500 units, with many retail outlets reporting sellouts. By comparison, DS Lite is out pacing 2003's launch sales of Nintendo's juggernaut Game Boy Advance SP by more than 12%.
The Nintendo DS Lite is an improvement over the original Nintendo DS in several ways. The screen now has four levels of brightness, the lowest of which is even better than the standard screen light of the original DS. The microphone is now located at the center between the screens, instead of the bottom-right corner. Start and Select buttons are also relocated. The DS Lite weighs less and is sleeker looking that the original. Also the press feel of the buttons have been changed to a more traditional feel, rather than the clicky buttons of the original. Finally the stylus is slightly longer and thicker and has been moved to the right side of the system where before it was at the back of the system.
