Is there any word on the pricing yet? I really want one of these, hopefully it will be out before Christmas...
As nice as it looks, these 7" systems look like total monsters to me. Do any of you think this or even the wii u is a practical system?
Compared to the smaller devices, I think 7 inches is probably more practical for things such as web browsing, presentation, word processing, and streaming video. It's more of a tablet form factor than a handheld, but that's what makes it so attractive to me.
As far as Wii U goes, it's not really a standalone tablet in the same sense as an Android or iOS tablet. The screen on it is only 6-inch resistive (compared to most tablets' 7" and up), and you can't use it outside of the console's range. I personally do not find it practical, especially when you can just download Hulu/Netfix/YouTube on your budget Android tablet or something. I also don't think most games will be playable on its extra screen the way NSMBU is.
