“It’s genuinely the best thing I think I’ve ever worked with. I can tell you that it’s got a ’tilt’ function that’s not dissimilar to iPhone, but does a lot more.

Apparently, a number of studios have the DS 2 (like we reported yesterday), but the current dev kit sent out is only a prototype of the final product. Nintendo is looking for feedback about the device, but it doesn’t look like the company plans on announcing anything next month, let alone next week.
