The Nintendo 3DS is expected to go on sale in Europe and the US in the early part of 2011, although Nintendo hasn’t given an official date as yet.

The second display is a 3 inch display with a resolution 320 x 240 pixels. processing comes from two 266MHz ARM11 processors, a PICA200 133MHZ GPU by DMP, and 64MB of RAM, plus 4MB of video RAM.
