Update: Nintendo DSi XL

Listed below are my post details that I provided when the Nintendo XL release was first announced.

I assigned TechBoy (my tween son) the job of taking the Nintendo DSi XL on a test run. He has a way with words(short and to the point) so I asked him for a sentence that I could use on my blog.

TechBoy's Take: "Have you ever herd about the DSi XL? Its the latest Nintendo system since the DSi. What I like about the DSi XL is it has a larger screen, when you go back to using the regular DSI it fells like playing on a cell phone."

He enjoys playing on the larger screen, using the photo/sound manipulation tools and the camera. Overall - there is not going back for TechBoy - he now only uses the Nintendo DSi XL. But that is good news for his 7yr old brother - who was the lucky one to get his Nintendo DSi. And TechBoy's brother is very happy to finally have the DSi - so all is good in the TechFamily house!
