In addition, there is an infra-red communicator port situated on the top of the unit.The 3DS has two cameras on the outside of the device, capable of taking 3D photos and capturing 3D video, as well as a camera positioned above the top screen that faces the player; both cameras have a resolution of 640x480 pixels (0.3 Megapixel).

Great Handheld Device
I've always loved purple so I was lucky that Play-Asia had this color on sale. It's a great console to have since 3ds is still small like its sister DS. The 3DS graphic itself looks really cool with certain games although it really requires you to look at it from the right angle. I really like the 3ds adjustment slide, putting it on the middle which is just right for me.

The QR Card is fun and the pedometer is a nice addition. Although now that Nintendo has taken out the swap note, I'm not sure what to use the coins for.
Unfortunately, since I live in Indonesia, not a lot of people seems to be owning a 3DS so I don't really get to try the streetpass feature which sucks. And I don't think I've seen a Nintendo spot area so there are several built-in features that i can't enjoy, that are sometimes incorporated to some of the games as well. But that's my problem. I'm sure it's different in America and Japan.

The game price IS a lil beyond my liking but being able to purchase from nintendo eshop makes things easier. So far I haven't regretted buying a 3DS yet.

This is a really great console to own, the color is really beautiful, and the console itself look sturdy (even more than my first 3DS).

Be careful
Great item to get from them but just be careful when using fedex as they charge you later for the tax which i had to pay about USd 20 which really sucks. I dont think that i will be using this carrier anymore so be careful guys. But the console is fabtastic .

Sassy Purple
Easily my favourite color on the 3DS line. It's also much smaller than I initially expected, so that was a pleasant surprise.

A small note though - it comes bundled with an adaptor that's specific to USA only. If you're from another region you will probably need to purchase your own adaptor to charge it.
