    I don't think so at all as it doesn't mention Nintendo or the 3DS anywhere but I guess if there going to try and implement it into mobile devices there is a small chance they will turn to the 3DS. Sadly, Nintendo favors ATI cards over nVidia but who knows, that could change.

    Nothing. If the 3DS does have Tegra 2 I doubt any of this news will be related.

    What does this mean for the 3DS?....Nothing. Nintendo will end up using a proprietary OS solution along with various hardware protection schemes on top of Tegra2. This could however be big news for homebrew on 3DS i.e. Android porting for the 3DS and such if they can get past the hardware/software protection that Nintendo will undoubtedly throw in.
