The much-anticipated Nintendo 3DS has gone on sale in Australia, with a midnight launch held at EB Games stores in Australian state capitals. The Nintendo 3DS is the latest version of Nintendo's handheld touchscreen device, which started with the original Nintendo DS in early 2005.

Read our preview of the Nintendo 3DS.

Look through our comparison of the Nintendo 3DS and Sony NGP (PSP 2).

Nintendo found more mainstream adoption with the improved Nintendo DS Lite in 2006, with further upgrades coming in the form of the Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL. The Nintendo 3DS uses a lenticular 3D screen that simulates a 3D effect without the use of 3D glasses like those seen on 3D TVs.

The Nintendo 3DS can be purchased nationwide for $348, although many retailers are offering discounts or bundling free games during the console's Australian launch period.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
