Have you ever wanted to play some of the many solid 3DS games out there, but at the same time been very keen to fork out some extra for a 3D effect you really do not care much about? The solution is here: Nintendo has in fact announced Nintendo 2DS.
Nintendo 2DS is basically the same as the 3DS, but just the 3D effect, and you should be able to play both 3DS and DS games on it.

How pleasant it is to hold and play remains to be seen.
Otherwise, all of the functionality and standard software online and multiplayer capabilities of 3DS stand. It should even be possible to take 3D images with it, which will be possible to see the 3D whether it leads into a 3DS.
