Why the Nintendo DSi browser doesn’t support Flash

The DSi browser is out in Japan, and I have seen quite a few disappointed comments on the lack of Flash support. It would have been great for videos on the go, but one needs to keep the technical specifications of the DSi in mind, which seem to be below even the Flash Lite system requirements.

In addidion to that, Nintendo is Opera Software's customer, and that means that Nintendo calls the shots. If the DSi had been powerful enough to support Flash Lite, it would have been up to Nintendo whether to include it or not.

  1. I will go there. Can you write how you type in web links and make so you can click it and go there.

  2. I looked at the system requirments and I saw that the problem is that the dsi is not fast enough it runs at 133mhz not 200mhz it has enough ram but that's the only problem but I'm sure that they can make a version of flash that the dsi can run.

  3. If the dsi ran at 200mhz it would drain the battery faster. Then you will be more angry but maybe a bigger battery will help.

  4. You know what!? We don't have to tell Nintendo. Another thing is to contact Adobe and ask if they can make a version of flash player that will run a 133mhz and 16mb of ram because that's what the dsi runs at and no other flash player will work with it's browser and all I mean ALL OF US WANT IT.

    There is already a new DS coming out soon and it might have better specs tho the issue with having flash player is it has to be keep updated

  6. If you look back at Anonymous comments he said they could make a ram card foe the sd card slot no not even the ds card slot because the ds card slot is made for games not ram same with the sd slot. Speaking of anonymous it's getting kinda lonely with out him commenting why isn't he?

    I think the SD card thing was either mentioned in a form or in the comments earlier Originally posted by billsofat:
