Newly Designed DS Out This Month?

Rumors are a muck suggesting Nintendo could pull an Apple and release a newly designed DS on January 16, this according to Lik-Sang. Spong has reported that the new DS will take on a “cellular phone-inspired design” with voice-driven functionality (VOIP). From the article: “Another clamshell design is expected, with the DS slimmed down significantly in all directions. The new DS is expected to be ‘…an opening square’ with the side-buttons and D-pad barely fitting.”

Fact or Fiction? We’re going with “no idea” on this one, but if true, please make the thing more ergonomic than the original. And by the way, I have yet to play a video game on an ergonomic cell-phone, so hopefully that rumor is bogus.
