This is the most important factor for me, and why I didn't buy it.

Can it be used when you're out in the street or on the bus?
No...

Is it convenient for me to use at home over wifi compared with other things I have that can also browse?
Not at all...

Sure you could take it to a free wifi enabled cafe or pub, you can use it maybe at a Uni or at work if you have wifi access, but for me there's zero need.

That's just me.

It sucks that they charge for it too, when just about every other device offers browser software for free. Perfect example - if I'm ever in need of the above, I usually have my PSP with me anyway, not to mention phone.

Yeah. I'd sooner use the PSP browser, or the Wii one, and they're not exactly too crash hot in themselves, so I hope that answers your question. The stylus control doesn't make up for the slow speeds, limited functionality and really cramped screen.

The DS only supports WEP encryption.
This means changing my router settings. Something I don't like doing.

Likewise. And I highly doubt you'll find any secured networks worth their mettle still using WEP.

Its pretty average, its rendering engine is really sub-par and it is really quite slow to browse alot of the time. There is no flash/java/plugin support at all.
