Making VoIP on Nintendo DS a reality: new open source SIP client available

SvSIP, a new VoIP client for Nintendo DS is making quite a stir! To name a few, Tom Keating, Engadget and Gizmodo also picked it up.

Congratulations are certainly in order for Samuel Vinson, for porting pjsip to Nintendo DS. I am going to try it out myself, as soon as I reconfigure my wi-fi back to WEP. (Update: Here’s my post on using pjsip on Nintendo DS)

Oops I mentioned the i-word, I’m sure people will think it’s there for keyword stuffing.

But seriously, some comments on digg already saying it’s an “iPhone killer”. What do you think?
