    I've seen these in a lot of electronics like cell phones and the nintendo ds, but I don't know what they are nor what they are for... Can anyone brighten the subject?

    In cellphones they look like a connector to connect an antenna to me, most often I see them in the RF section... In a nintendo ?? no idea.

    They may be high speed connection points, where test equipment plugs into the device for testing during manufacture.

    Exactly what is the device in the photos and do you have better photos that show these plugs in relation to the PCBs and outer casing?

    Those look like some cell phone external antenna jacks did a while back, but I doubt that is what they are now.

    Probably for easy flashing of new firmware or something since they get 3 (maybe 4) wires to work with.

    In LCD-monitors they're usually used for the HV-connection for the CCFL-tubes.
