It’s speculated at this point that the 3DS will feature a thumbstick of sort, which will be used for manipulating objects in 3D space. There will also likely be a vibration feedback system. All of this is derived from some patents filed by Nintendo last year.

The wireless capabilities of the device should be improved as well, as it’s expected to support the 802.11g standard. Last but not least, it’s likely we’ll also get an increase in the battery life, even maybe bringing it to what it used to be in the DS Lite. Right now, the DSi can run for about 9 hours with a fully-charged battery, which compared to the 15 hours the DS Lite is capable of, makes quite a difference.
