Nintendo 3DS rumored to hold 1.5GB space, dual 266MHz ARM11 processors

It's almost September 29, and we haven't seen anything official about the Nintendo 3DS for awhile. Naturally, the rumor mill starts up again, and this time it's about internal specs.

According to IGN (which is typically trustworthy), the Nintendo 3DS will sport a pair of 266MHz ARM11 processors as well as a 133MHz GPU with 4MB of dedicated VRAM. That's followed up by 64MB of RAM and 1.5GB of storage space. IGN offers up a number of examples of portable devices running with ARM11 CPUs, such as the Zune HD, but none of them are true gaming products. But it could still be possible.

Nintendo officially announced the 3DS handheld gaming console in June at E3 2010, following months of teases and rumors. While a launch in time for the madness of the holiday shopping season seems inevitable, I wish this darn gadget would just arrive already so we could move on and play with it.
