Nintendo Game Boy Color (1998)
In 1998--nine years after the first Game Boy--Nintendo released a Game Boy with a color screen. The new device still lacked a backlight, however, an omission that kept its price low and its battery life long. The Game Boy Color represented a significant extension of the Game Boy platform, since it possessed slightly better technical capabilities than its predecessor while maintaining backward compatibility with the earlier Game Boy. It sold very well and extended Nintendo's dominance in the handheld market for another few years.
