We should have a proper unveiling of the final 3DS model this month, but you know us gamers, we have no patience. So it is that a crafty little bastard stole a 3DS from a Chinese production line, and did what any noble thief would do -- uploaded the evidence to the Internet.
A number of photos (here) and a video demonstration (below) are now online, but check them out while they last. Methinks Nintendo won't be too fond of keeping this stuff around, so don't be surprised if both the video, and a certain Chinese factory worker, disappear without a trace.
Doesn't look much different from the one I fiddled with at E3. Doesn't really matter. I want it.
