    That's two screens coupled together into one component, mate - you can clearly see the division between the top and bottom one. :P

    Actually view the source article, you can see this division is removed to reveal what's indeed a single screen.

    Hmm, if it's indeed a single screen, I'd like to see it powered then.

    *Redacted after further study of the subject, it indeed is one physical screen with two logical screens displayed... well I'll be damned, what a waste. :rofl: *

    behind a keyboard or a gamepad
    only one thing isn't right..... is there a small digitalizer for the "lower" screen or is a large digitalizer for the whole screen(which will be stupid if you ask me)???

    QUICK EDIT: to clarify what I'm trying to say, the digitalizer is the touch component of the screen, WHICH IS COMPLETELY INDEPENDENT OF THE SCREEN THAT DISPLAY IMAGES, so no go saying "is a single screen, can't you see it??"

    It's the DS, Nintendo! You forgot to put a dual screen in the system named for its dual screens! Everything about this handheld is a damned lie!

    Gambia, The
    2DS actually. So it should have two pairs of screens. And the 3DS should have three.
    Or if it just means "2D screen", I have a bunch of these systems. Neither run the games for this thing, though.

    This is almost as terrible when Rockstar completely betrayed their loyal customers when GTA Online didn't work for a whole DAY.
