DS Gets Browser, TV Tuner

Courtesy Engadget.

This was apparently the big secret that was yet to be revealed for Nintendo's DS system..a web browser and a TV tuner. Am I the only one who thinks it's counterintuitive to do either on a handheld console? Not to mention Sony beat them to the punch with the browser and Sega beat them to the punch with the Game Gear TV tuner.

I happen to own both of the current gen portable systems, and outside of homebrew, I play the DS more far and away. Why? Well Mario Kart mostly, but because it has always been Nintendo's big thing to concentrate on games. The new DS Lite, while par for the course of redesigning their systems, and these new add ons, make me wonder if that is about to change.
