On http://e3.nintendo.com/3ds/ in Features under Input/Output it says it will have a charging cradle terminal? I thought that would be weird to have why add another port when you can just buy one of those cheap charging cradles?

if i'm reading your question right, i'm guessing they added both because it's hard to play something when it's stuck in a charging cradle, and not everyone will want to use an AC adapter? or it could be because they plan to add more music playing functionality or something, and they want people to be able to plug it into a cradle/dock device? idk, just throwing that out there :3

Well if that's true I may not need a new MP3 Player. (mine broke today) I can go without a portable music player for a while.

I've been wondering what this is. Could it maybe be this port, and if it's mounted like traditional charging docks a... projector?

I saw a picture of someone testing it out and they had headphones plugged in there and the other color on the bottom looks like a cover of some sort.

Yeah, after just seeing some close-ups, I can see the port in back. Oh well, a headphones port in the center is nice.

I'm a little bit late coming into all these posts ... so this might have been talked about elsewhere and I missed it. But in this picture it looks like it's showing 2 cameras on the outside cover? Is that right?

Yeah, 1 camera on the inside and 2 on the outside. The two outside cameras can be used for taking 3d pictures.

I hate that the camera isn't going to improve. Haven't Nintendo learned their lesson on this with the DSi? I mean, the cost of the technology has SURELY come down... can't they make it at least a 2-3 megapixel camera?

I'd be happy with 1.2MP. 0.3 is stupid, at least for the outside cameras. 3D pictures are awesome but when the quality sucks so much it doesn't matter...Not that it DOES matter since the pictures are in 3D and if it's like the DSi you can't really do anything with those pictures other than keep them on the device. Maybe Facebook but who really used that feature?

The 3DS screen resolution is smaller than 0.3 MP. So why would you want a better camera if the 3DS wouldn't even be able to show you the photos in better quality?
It would be nice if Nintendo would let you put the 3D photos on your computer though, even though I don't think so because most people get headaches from watching stereoscopic images since you have to cross your eyes.
And btw if you have no problem with crossing your eyes just google some stereoscopic images or youtube videos and that's probably how the 3DS 3D effect will be like.
(Stereoscopic photos are made by two cameras next to each other taking a picture, like the 3DS. The only difference is that on a normal screen they can only displayed next to each other so you have to cross your eyes until a third, 3 dimensional photo appears between the two other ones. And the 3DS just has tilted pixels (half of them tilted left, the other half right like this / which show the picture for each eye)

For example this is how I think the 3DS games look like:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BU1oC43vdPM (Just experiment with your cross eyeing until you get a sharp 3rd picture in the middle) So not, out of the screen in your face 3Dness (that wouldn't even be possible with it's hardware) but just really depth.
Here also an image

Probably getting a Vita with LBP soon...

@roops: half the deal with the camera now is posting pics to Facebook, but facebook pics from the DSi are reeeeeally hit-or-miss because the DSi camera isn't that great. I can get better pics off my phone than the DSi, lol, and my phone is at least three or four years older than my DSi. that's why we want a better camera for the 3ds, lol.

Well I think that's what cell phones are for :P
For games the 3DS camera is good enough especially for processing the images fast and I don't think anybody prefers a handheld gaming system camera to his cellphone camera especially because you basically have your cell phone always with you and only a few weirdos have their handhelds always with them :P

Besides that I agree.

There is one way... What I really hate about my DSI is that any application that save the album (including the camera itself) save the images at a lower quality (Maybe 75% or 60% quality), So hopefully now, the 3DS will save images at 100% quality so it can look better than the DSI.
