DSi: Iawata asks some more

Satoru Iwata ask some more question about the Nintendo DSi. This time (it was aqtually end of February and early March) it’s about Internal Software and the Nintendo DSi Browser. Here just a small quote:

More than anything we looked to the internal features of the Wii console. They were helpful in making the Nintendo DSi features but also gave us a hint as to what extent we should explain the internal memory to users. But when it came to features that haven’t existed in game consoles before, like the cameras for example, we had to figure everything out for ourselves, so there were plenty of twists and turns along the way. Simply looking at cell phones wouldn’t suffice.
