Now that there are some concrete details about the Nintendo DSi, Joystiq has made a very nice little hardware comparison chart comparing the DSi to the PSP-3000 and Apple’s “gaming handheld” the iPhone/iPod Touch.
1: Approximate size, based on Nintendo’s assertion that DSi is 12 percent thinner than DS Lite
Interesting points to note are the incredible processing power of the iPhone, compared to the other 2, the fact that all three now have their own application stores and the fact that out of the box the PSP is the only one without a camera and of course a touch screen. I would however also note that although not mentioned as far as input methods are concerned, the PSP is the only one to feature an analogue stick.
Over all on paper, Apples offering looks like by far the best bet, too bad its so far behind in the “games I’d actually like to play” department it almost doesn’t feature at all.
