people compare how ds popped up out of nowhere at e3 and released that fall but was a release date given for the ds at e3?

No, we just know anytime up to March 2011 as seen in their original system overview (back when it was leaked on Nintendo's site).

I meant how people say ds was shown at e3 not the 3ds and then released that fall. People are saying this is going to be the same thing. But we didn't get a release date for the 3ds and wondering if the ds did during its first debut at e3.

Oh i see. I pulled up an old E3 2004 video and found Nintendo's conference-

Reggie announced it as targeted "sometime this year (2004)" and in Europe/Aus first quarter 2005. They ended up releasing it in November that year for US and Japan, so that came true. Still, not THAT much more descriptive than 3DS...
