3DS Could Feature 3G Connectivity

If cryptic interview is to be believed

We know that Nintendo is keen to do more with the connectivity features of its upcoming 3DS, with the ability to download new content automatically via WiFi. Now a rumour has surfaced that the machine could also feature 3G technology to offer an always-on Internet connection.

Ryuji Yamada, President at Japanese wireless company NTT DoCoMo, revealed in a recent interview that his company was in discussion with handheld console manufacturers about the possibility of including 3G features in their upcoming machines. He declined to name particular companies and neither Nintendo nor handheld rival Sony has given any comment, so think of this as the latest in a long line of tantalising 3DS rumours for now.
