    Although not released in the United States until the 27th of March, Nintendo's 3DS was released in Japan on the 26th of February. We pulled some strings to acquire this Japanese model, and cannot wait to see what makes the 3DS tick. Join us today as we tear down Nintendo's newest and most radical handheld device yet.[/p]

    Have an interesting read [​IMG]

    Wow, that's some ribbon cable madness.
    I won't be opening up this one like with the DS lite, that's for sure, good thing that the battery is easily replaceable.

    That's unfortunate. This will make changing cases difficult.

    Cool to look at, and I learned some things I can do without even taking it apart! (Blow at the microphone[s?] to give the top screen a spin)

    The one thing I'm wondering has to do with this:
    If you've read some of the "Iwata Asks" interviews, it's been mentioned that while the top screen's outer-facing cameras allow 3D pictures, it was tough to make the system rigid enough to that even if dropped, they wouldn't become unalligned. If they are unalligned, 3D pictures wouldn't work. So I bet their 3DS can't take 3D pictures as it should after being taken apart and put back together.

    the ribbon cable is smaller, hopefully it wont break easily this time if closed (dont even dare open it if u wanna check it out... there's atleast 6 ribbon cable connections). The hinge still seems weak to me, man!
    crazy, absolutely crazy packaging although looks sturdier for those who will not open the 3ds but for those who wanna mess around with it (cover change), forget doing it yourself for quite some time

    I really hope this will help the development of homebrew/hacking

    I can't seem to see if this unit has an F1 or F2 fuse most of the codes are different.

    SMD fuses are important as they protect the main elements. I have had a quick look at the circuit boards but can't find where the might be?

    The 3DS with have these fuses.

    Just the other way around : vertical instead of horizontal




    and it was n reference at his comment about Choosing The Right system color if changing cases.

    AC3 shows up as a Dolby Digital Stream, used for 5.1 surround sound, commonly found in Digital Video Disc movies.
    I don't think the 3DS has a subwoofer built in [​IMG]

    Yet, so does AAC too which has support for 5.1 and 7.1. , so the argument about AC3 being multi-channel is not valid ... and i have seen AC3 files encoded to just 2.1 format
