The DSi is the most music-friendly Nintendo handheld yet.

Nintendo has announced that its DSi handheld will be available in the UK from 3 April.

The updated console, which was launched in Japan in 2008, features bigger screens than its predecessor, plus a built-in camera and the facility to play music that's stored on an SD card.

This can also be speeded up or slowed down, which could be useful when you're trying to learn to play a song by ear.

No price has yet been set, but our colleagues over at CVG believe that it'll cost around £150.

Plug in a copy of the Korg DS-10 and you'll have a truly portable music-making system that'll make any long journey fly by.
