Almost a year after its release in Japan
and nine months after the same in Europe, Nintendo is finally sending the Opera DS browser to North America on June 4
. Although it lacks Flash, video, sound and PDF support
(yikes!), the package includes full stylus control as well as handwriting recognition. You can create bookmarks and display images, but forget about saving sexy pictures of Anna Kournikova to your DS. It's definitely a gimped way to surf the web, but reports
say it's a generally smooth experience. The browser retails for roughly $32 in Japan and $52 in Europe, but no pricing has been mentioned for the North American release.
