Can the tablet controller run independent from the system?

I was wondering if there's any benefits with taking the tablet out of the house. You know, say you're bored at work, and wanted to browse nintendo land or something. Can it connect to wifi? Or do you need to have it connected to the system at all times to make it functional? I know the thing doesn't have a processor on it, so I doubt you can do much with it by itself.

Nope. How would it run Nintendoland without access to the disc? It needs to be within wifi range of the system which is turned ON.

I remember reading that there would be a Kindle Fire app not sure if you can take it outside.

Yes. The tablet controller is a controller, through and through. All the actual brain functions and everything come from the actual console itself. It does not work independently like the Sega Dreamcast VMU (which was a minature Gameboy, in itself).

However, it does have all those controls, buttons, various motion controls, and touchscreen functions built in. It's a heavy featured controller, but it isn't a system in itself.
