Late 2013 at earliest.
Based on what? Not on the history of Nintendo's first DS handheld revision. I wrote about this a week ago, before any "analyst" report and any of this was even being mentioned. In my post I said on one point, "The original Nintendo DS had been released for 1 year, 2 months, 5 days before Nintendo announced they would be releasing the Nintendo DS Lite model. The Nintendo 3DS released in North America last March, and from its release date to Nintendo's E3 press conference next week, it will be 1 year, 2 months, 9 days."
So, it's not too early, at least not based on the DS' history.
