-No news on a magazine, Nintendo Power will probably cover all Wii news

B. When is the black Wii coming out? I want that for Xmas.

-Not confirmed yet. Probably won't be in by Christmas, though. So far only the white Wii has been featured for sale and for Christmas shopping.

C. - I don't know

D. What will be better probly, horizontal or verticle stance on it.. Hmm.. I forget which was better/worse for the PS2..

-Vertical is the best way, it doesn't sit horizontal. :lol:

E- Dunno

F. What can it play as far as DVD-R, DVD+R, CD+R, CDRW, Etc.

DVD attatchment will be sold in the future, as well as MAYBE a new Wii with one built in. Doesn't play music to my knowledge, and I dunno wat CDRW is.

Its just a game system. No fancy attatchments that can be bought for your TV for $30 or anything.

I heard it could play music off of a SD card.

regarding the black case

In a recent interview with respected Japanese gaming publication Nintendo Dream, Nintendo’s Planning General Manager Mitsuaki Hagishima stated that there are no plans to release the Wii in other colours than the default white model.

This of course will prove to be disheartening to those who hoped that there would be a wide variation of coloured units to choose from, which is sadly not the case. The decisive reason being that Nintendo wish their product to be instantaneously recognizable, much like Apple’s Mac.

Though all is not lost for those gamers who wish to differentiate themselves from the masses, as Nintendo is set to release its Wii’mote’ controller in a variation of colours. The reason for this is that after a chaotic multiplayer session, players will easily be able to locate and retrieve their own personal Wii controller, which should put a stop to any petty arguments that could occur.
from here

Processors:

* CPU: PowerPC based processor codenamed "Broadway", made with a 90 nm SOI CMOS process

* GPU: ATI "Hollywood" GPU made with a 90 nm CMOS process

alot of your other questions may be found in wiki i believe
