While they did not hint at whether or not the system would be available this year, it still might. When Nintendo announced the first DS, it was at E3 2004. They did not say what the price and availability would be at first, but later announced that in September. The system was then released in November. Let's hope history repeats itself.
As for the price, one of Nintendo of Europe's bigwigs hinted that they are trying to fit the price within current DS pricing scales. A DS Lite is $130, a DSi is $170, and the DSi XL is $190. Hopefully the guy was right, because I would absolutely love to only pay $200 for the 3DS (although let's be honest, I'd pay a lot more).
May the 3DS grace our homes and enrich our lives soon!
