3DS owners will at long last gain direct world wide web access when the system's free internet browser launches with the 3DS e-Shop on June 7 (JST). Today, Nintendo updated the 3DS official site with full details on the browser.
A few major points from the page include:
- The browser will not support plugins like Flash or PDF.
- The browser can be made to zoom in on JPEG images by tapping and holding. These images can then be saved to SD and viewed in the 3DS Camera app.
- The browser can directly display 3D picture data in the MPO format.
- You can store up to 64 favorites.
- The browser can read into your SD card to upload pictures that you've taken with the 3DS Camera.
- Compatible image formats include MPG, GIF, JPEG, PNG, BMP and ICO.
- The browser will have parental controls. You can limit internet use through the 3DS system settings. You'll also have free access to Digital Arts' i-Filter for Nintendo 3DS, which allows for more specific restrictions.
Web developers will find even further specifics, including some tips for making your page compliant, at the spec page.
