The Nintendo DS is a seventh generation handheld console released by Nintendo (on November 1, 2004 in North America, and December 2, 2004 in Japan). It is Nintendo's first console to have two screens, with the lower being an interactive touch screen. The Nintendo DS has received two redesigns, the DS lite, and the DSi, the latter of which soon getting a redesign in the form of the Nintendo DSi XL. The Nintendo DS comes with a stylus, which can be kept secure by putting it in a small compartment on the DS, whose location varies depending on what type of DS it is. The Nintendo DS' cartridges are smaller than those of the Game Boy Advance, and are placed near the top portion of the DS. Game Boy Advance games can also be played on the DS and DS lite, but is removed from the DSi, due to weight conservance.

The Nintendo DS Lite is the second member of the Nintendo DS line of consoles, and predecessor to the Nintendo DSi.
