Nintendo told The Wall Street Journal that they plan on rolling out new, non-gaming functions on the Nintendo DS.

President Satoru Iwata said the features will be useful in "places like train stations, amusement parks or museums" and could be accessed wirelessly.

Although specifics were short, the features will roll out in 2008. We're guessing site-specific wi-fi content: IE, a virtual tour guide for your local art museum, or instantly available train schedules at the station. As for amusement parks: We're guessing digital corn dogs are on the way.

For a sneak peak at what the new features might be, travel to Safeco Field, the home of the Seattle Mariners, where the Nintendo Fan Network was quietly rolled out this season. Fans who brought their DS to the stadium were able to  "order food and drinks, watch the live television feed of the game, access stats and scores, and play trivia from the comfort of their seat."
