16:9 display FTW!!!
high res OLED screen would be nice

Only problem with OLED is it can be hard to see in direct sunlight, something that's been noted with things like the HTC Desire, Nexus One etc.

If they managed to get hold of Samsung's Super AMOLED it'd be more viable as it offers 80% less sunlight reflection.

I'd imagine that the new DS will just stick with a TFT screen but maybe employ LED back/edge lighting to help reduce power consumption.

To be honest, I'd love an iPhone-esque glass capacitative display. The only problem there is that you'd need a special capacitative stylus if you wanted to use a stylus.

wow, 16:9? that's awesome! ^_^

gotta give it to nintendo; even with this leak of the internals, we still know very little of the 3DS, other than the obvious being confirmed.

If the bottom screen will be regular than how does the two screens combine to form "one big giant screen" as early reports have stated?

Maybe it'll twist round to make one massive ultra-widescreen display.

That looks like the base of the Gamecube with screens stuck on to me.:P
