3DS update finally to be released on May 17th?

3DS developer event is next Tuesday for the 3DS:

WHEN: May 17th, 2011

Target audience is Producers, Designers, key decision makers regarding game features, and project green lights. This will not be a technical conference. The target audience will not be programmers or marketing teams.

The Nintendo 3DS provides the most connections and distribution opportunities of any system Nintendo has launched. We will be discussing the various methods of content/messaging distribution the device has to offer, and how your products can leverage each of them. The Nintendo 3DS system allows you to reach your audience everywhere they go using online, (wireless broadband connection) and peer to peer through 80211 based local wireless communications. The event will also cover the features native to the system that will drive its use, and provide new ways to surprise and entertain. Features covered in the presentation will include:

Nintendo 3DS's new e-Shop
Out of House Distribution (Nintendo Zone viewer)
Online Matchmaking
Internet Connectivity
Friend Presence
Digital Distribution
Local Wireless
Street Pass TM

Native System features
AR Functions
Tools/Middleware update
Project Sheet

I'm hoping that at least we will either get the update on this day or a few days later, or Nintendo will announce when the update will be officially unveiled. I'm sure all of you feel the same when you turn on your 3DS and know in the back of your mind that it's just limited right now from all the promises Nintendo has made thus far. Bring on that update ASAP!
