Someone has leaked pictures of the E3 model, sans the casing. Pictures confirm that GBA SP power adapters are DS-friendly.
A few days ago, GameCube-Europe posted interesting screens of the E3 Nintendo DS’s innards and stress testing.
The biggest tidbit of news is a photo of the Lithium-Ion Battery, which confirms what many observant Nintendo fans suspected when they studied the floor model: the DS’s power port is indeed compatible with GBA SP power adapters. This will surely come as a relief to gamers in European and other PAL territories interested in importing the system this year. The battery can be fully charged in three hours, and has a life span of 500 cycles.
The story’s other photos are more interesting than anything else, featuring the system’s exposed motherboard and the product hooked up to test equipment such as a logic analyzer and a large power supply.
