The NeoFlash team have been hard and at work and have announced some information about their latest DS development devices called the MagicKey 2 and MagicKey 3 respectively. These are standalone DS development devices which do not need a cart to function, instead they can be used with an SD or MMC card. MK3 is very similar to MK2 but it just has more memory for applications like media players and so on. Moreover, the MK2 is free for NDS developers!.
MagicKey2 / MagicKey3 Main Features:
1.Boot from ANY Flash cart.
2.Included 8Kb high-speed inner buffer, can use command to read/write it.

5.Support SD and MMC card directly, maximum memory size up to 16Gb ~ 32Gb.
6.Included Li-Ion battery, lifetime over 5 years, can keep the game save data around 3~7 days, for temporary using only, must backup the save data to menu flash later for a long time safe backup.
7.Battery voltage display, can show NDS working voltage and MK2 / MK3 Li-Ion battery voltage.
8.Support software reset, it'll help to make the multi-files loader.
