I noticed the DS has 802.11 wireless but doesn't anyone know if it will have bluetooth?  I don't see it mentioned in the specs but I remember an article a few weeks back discussing it.  I just can't find the article.  

And: Is the 802.11 b or g?

I'm not sure if it has bluetooth, but if it doesn't it has something that does the same thing. I believe wireless play can be achieved between DS' within 50-100 feet one another.

And: Is the 802.11 b or g?

I believe it is "b", but don't quote me on that.

I'm guessing the DS will be based on the B standard, as the G is far more power hungry. In addition, would you really need to transmit that much game data between DS's on a constant basis? I sure hope not.

Keep in mind that the Xbox and PS2 work just fine with the B standard if you have a wireless configuation for the consoles.

Also...I thought that the DS info we got said that it has Bluetooth compatibility as well... Gotta go double check that.
