Another DS redesign?

Yea, yea, yea, I know this is sort of old news to people, and it's just a rumor... but c'mon now how many Nintendo rumors have been proven incorrect now a days, and plus this one just tickles me (yea, I said it)... but yea this one says that the redesign is already done and that it is thinner, has no GBA port, on board storage (I hope there's an SD card slot somewhere there) and larger screens...

Now I'd frown on the loss of the GBA port, being that there's already a few DS games that use the slot for add on's or some features, but I guess this is it's time to go, and time to place the whole Game Boy game collection on the Virtual Console (in the form of an emulated Super Game Boy and the Game Boy Player) and hopefully we can see a portable version of the Virtual Console because of the internal memory.

I guess nows a good time for me to not upgrade from my Phat DS to a DS Lite. (All I need is a firmware update to get Mii characters on my DS)
