This week’s Fly or Die tried to tackle many questions about The Nintendo 3DS that comes to mind like, Is the new Nintendo 3DS all that? Does Rockmelt have a chance? Will mobile wallets ever be adopted by real people in real stores?
The 3D play is immersive and exciting. Now you can enjoy all new, amazing and immersive experience of simple stereoscopic 3D graphics that really pop out and combined with a gyroscope effect. Many of you might think that they will look like an idiot while playing it because the whole body needs to be move around gratuitously. But those who experienced it are of the view that it’s addictive, really.
The UI is highly refined with various interesting features including a “suspend mode” for games through which you can drop into Nintendo’s communication and photo interface to take pictures and send notes.”StreetPass system” is another unique feature that lets the 3DS interact with other consoles as you walk by them in the streets.
Rocketmelt beta (private invite-only) was released last November; Chromium-based browser startup backed by Marc Andreessen and the press it received was rowdy. About a week age, it has been opened up publicly and has few hundred thousand active users at the moment.
Though the idea of turning mobile phone into a digital wallet do not have a successful history but recently the idea will become reality through Near Field Communication (NFC) chips. Google already supports NFC chips in some Android phones like Nexus S. Apple also has been working since last summer to put its own NFC chip in iPhones but reports suggest that technology is not yet ready for the next iPhone 5.
Nintendo has revolutionized the way to handheld the games and hopefully The Nintendo 3DS are going to be a hit on their hands.
