SFX-360: Nintendo has made a nasty habit this generation of making slightly different revisions to their best-selling DS handheld which has been very annoying for most of us. Following their latest exploit of the DSi XL, the big mama DS, came the announcement of the “future” brethren of the DS family called the 3DS, which is booked for a demonstration at E3 2010 next week.

The Sharp Free-Form Display Technology has been announced and presented in June 2014 and the new LCD tech allows for the creation of unconventionally-shaped displays that can be used in various upcoming technology. According to recent rumors, Nintendo, who has been collaborating with Sharp on the 3DS, should be the first company to employ the Sharp Free-Form Display in its upcoming hardware products. Since Nintendo is planning a new sleep monitoring device and supposedly a new console, the Sharp Free-Form Technology LCD panels could bring a whole new touch to the upcoming products.
Engadget - Nintendo's original 3D handheld launched in 2011 and three years is a seriously long time in tech -- especially for Nintendo. Fortunately, it's been a hit -- over 44 million units sold so far -- following a tradition of handheld console leadership that started way back with the original Game Boy. (And if you've seen Nintendo's recent depressing earnings reports, you know that handhelds are why Mario is still able to even make ends meet.)
