    If these specs are real, I'll be very impressed with the new Fusion DS. Anyways, happy reading, source at bottom of article:

    A bit early for Next-Gen handheld speculations but let's hope Gateway 3DS works on it. :)

    my dad works for nintendo.
    your specs are too damn high for a nintendo console, you need to think more about 2007 specs

    when the hell has a Hardware Speculation on Nintendo product been true with cutting edge tech....


    NEVER!


    my educated guess.

    1ghz cpu
    512 mb ram
    and a new gimmick



    Pokemon diamond and pearl confirmed!

    Nintendo needs to do something, lack of 3rd party support would most definitely push towards stronger hardware.

    I swear, I've seen those twice now - once as the Wii U's rumoured specs, once as a successor's specs last year. Also, if you're going to copy-paste an article, don't post at all - a link would've sufficed.

    Even though the specs sounds too good to be true, I personally think that the next Nintendo hardware will consist of whatever is cheap and plentiful. With plenty of mobile phones out there, I hope that they'll include a screen that's at least 720p and even a minimum of 1gb RAM but then again, Nintendo could always place an order for custom made parts instead. I wouldn't even put it past Nintendo to recycle their Wii U gamepad screens into their new handheld.

    Yes.
    Nintendo Fusion was the top contender in the pre-WiiU speculations. This is old, and utterly unrealistic. Not a chance of seeing a Nintendo product with specs like this.

    Not untill 2024, that is. Kappa

    Not sure but the current Wii U gamepad's resolution and screen seems like a perfect fit for the a next-gen Nintendo handheld.

    It's probably more of prototype to see consumers reactions since Nintendo's next-gen leap on the handheld market is probably going to see big changes and Nintendo has been dominating the handheld scene for so long I'd think they are taking measures to insure proper success in the form of the Wii U gamepad as beta testing.

    I would be disappointed if these specs were true. Low-end in true Nintendo fashion.
    Personally, I think the dual-screen idea was fantastic and worked wonderfully, but it's time to return to a GBA-like design.
    Or PSP, if you're so inclined.

    These specs will be outdated by the time the console comes out so they could be real.
