How long do you think the ds is going to last before nintendo makes a new handheld?

I'm just curious, the ds has been around for 5 years. Do you think Nintendo is planning another handheld?

Of course they're planning another. But as long as people keep buying insane amounts of DS iterations, and no one else can compete with them (I love to watch Sony fail), Nintendo has no reason to rush a new console out the door.

Of course Nintendo would be planning something new, but until the DS shows a single sign of sales dropping, Nintendo won't put it into action.

I want New Super Mario Bros 2. DS before that time. It'll probably just be another version of the DS again. Not exactly a new product line.

maybe in 2010/2011
probably because most consoles seem to be good until a new thing comes out.
The Game cube lasted for 5 years
The N64 lasted for about 4 or 5 years (Im not exactly sure.)
Pretty soon I think...

My guess is that Nintendo will wait untill they figure out a way to improve on the DS in an unprecedented way. Now that the DSi is out and has only been for a year or two, I think that will count as a new handheld for a while untill people stop buying DSiware games.
