Straight from engadget.

I think it looks like if you hold it, it'll crush. Maybe it's the pure white look.

Any opinions or comments?

Oh, and anyone else notice the new slots? (headphone/....charger?)

I love comment #6, looks like a mini iBook. Really now it just looks so much like an Apple product it's almost sickening.

What I think they should have done is made a golden one, with the mores on it like the original Legend of Zelda cart. You know that would go over better then an iPod look-alike style case.

Ya it's not very iPod-looking. Kind of moldy looking.

Things that worry me about it:
1. Check that last picture. Dost thou see a new female charger plug thingy or is it just me? I believe that current male plug has a thingy on the top demanding a little notch on the top of the female side. That'll be fun...

2. The screen seems to connected at only two point instead of the four points on the current model. That'll be +2 "breaking the screen", eh?

3. It appears to be shiney abs plsatic. A rather "shatterable" plastic. Breakable anyway...legos are made of it, and I've had my fair share of breaks with them. The current model is made of much stronger plastic.

4. If that black thing in the left middle side is the stylus holder...I'll be sick...

5. The screens are father apart on this one. Many games use that area only they're (kinda) measured to fit the older one's size. This could easily screw up gameing on that account...

6. When are the going to use that mic/headphone plug?! Jeez...

7. The white in that picture already appears to be staining...great.

8. Again, why the iBook look? Now N's rehashing other people's ideas? Com'on!

I'm sure there's more, but I'm too tired for this crap... :?

I like the ibook look because its clean but as luc said it does look like its staining already. I think that nintendo should have just left it alone becuase they keep redesigning and rebuilding things and not really improving on them I think that this could make them fail as a company. It is weird how that symbol is mirrored I wonder why?

Not all the parts are so discoloured. Maybe some of the parts are just left overs they decided to use for a cheap mock-up?
