No, 1st April hasn’t come early, and this is a real product: a wedge-shaped 3DS minus the 3D capabilities. It’s an entry-level device – the US price will be $130, which is around £85) – with a non-folding design. In most other respects, it’s fairly similar to the 3DS: the screens are the same size and the same cameras are on board. Basically, this is a Nintendo handheld focussed even more on the kid market than the current offerings. It hits the US on 12th October, and while an Asian launch date hasn’t been announced, it’s due to head this way at some point. We’ll be attempting to get our hands on one very soon.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/sAExBTWIp3M" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/android/fully-charged-hp-launches-new-slate-devices-ouya-gets-walking-dead-nintendo-launches-2ds-and#comments Android BlackBerry Gaming HP Ouya Thu, 29 Aug 2013 08:28:06 +0000 Cheryl Bates 1425917 at http://www.stuff.tv Five imaging apps for your BlackBerry http://www.stuff.tv/my/blackberry/five-imaging-apps-your-blackberry/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Get all of these apps half-off </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1004" height="804" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/blackberry-z10.jpg?1377234680" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>With the growing platform that is <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/blackberry/blackberry-q10/review" target="_blank">BlackBerry's</a> BB10, more and more major applications are available for users to try.

There is also speculation that the Lumia 1080 will be the first device to come with Windows Phone 8.1 and that the screen will be an AMOLED display with a full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. An autumn 2013 launch is mooted.

After several years of losing ground to Android, iOS and even Windows Phone, the Canadian smartphone maker has announced that it has set up a special committee to explore “strategic alternatives” to its current path. These include the possibility of selling the company to another firm. One possibility is that rival manufacturers begin buying up parts of BlackBerry they can use – the BBM service, for instance – which would likely mean the end of the company as we know it.
