Nintendo Game Boy Advance (2001)
By 2000, the models in Nintendo's original Game Boy line--with their limited color capabilities--were showing their age. In 2001, Nintendo released the Game Boy Advance, a 32-bit color handheld (still lacking a backlight) that could play more-complex, more-colorful games. Like other Game Boys before it, the Advance sold very well. It received two major updates: the backlit, clamshell-style Game Boy SP in 2003; and the ultrasmall Game Boy Micro in 2005.
