    As for music all I know for now is that it supports AAC and MP3.

    So you mean to say that the cradle doesn't care about voltage?

    Sorry I'm a noob at this, worried that since I'm going to buy from the US, the cradle might be in fire if I plug it in our outlet [​IMG]

    the hinge is extremly on the loose side on the 3ds. even if the topscreen is clicked into one of the two positions the screen is not really fixed in place and moves back and forth a lot, like 5-10mm or so.
    can this be confirmed?

    sry for my bad english, but i guess you get the point

    If you have a cable that works in Singapore to charge a DSLite or DSi, then you can plug that cable into the 3DS or the cradle and it will work.
    The point at which you have to worry about voltage is the transformer that plugs into the power point in the wall.
    That's the thing that is likely to melt or catch on fire if anything is going to.
    It is made to change either 110V to 5V, or 230/240V to 5V.
    I'm pretty sure America uses a different shape of wall plug than Singapore anyway, so chances are you won't be able to plug an American charger into the wall in your hosue in Singapore.

    American plug types are no worries; adapters can be easily bought here at low prices. Anyway, ALL 3rd party DSi chargers sold here are using the two prong American type-A plug accepting voltages of 100 - 240V, 50/60 Hz. So, I can just get one of those and plug it into the cradle (since I'm selling my XL off) [​IMG]

    No, at least mine is very tight. Hard. Stiff. Whatever.

    ONE QUESTION (more of a request though)

    Can someone help me check the 3DS charger from the US set, what is the voltage input? I want to buy beforehand before mine arrives if the input is 120 V, 60 Hz.

    How does the music app work? Does it sort songs by artist or stuff like that like an iPod, or does it just show a list of files?

    How is the built in browser? Does it compare to the Wii? Is it still Opera?

    The Browser hasn't been added yet, most likely in the may update.

    nah, the symbol for it is already in your menu, it just says you have to wait for an update to use it.
    Having it for free on the DSi and DSi XL, then charging people on the 3DS would be kind of dumb.

    Yeah, it's to stop it snapping when you car drives over a speed bump at any speed greater than 2 miles per hour.

    I know I already ask, so I ask one last time.

    What about the music app thing? Could it be a good ipod replacement, or is it just a novelty?

    Well moonshell needs a big microsd to make the 3DS ipod-ish, while the DS itself can use a big sd card which is expensive but is cheaper than microsd's lol
