Do you think, if the Game Boy was released today...

...that people would be giving Nintendo a hard time for releasing a smartphone controller? Let's pretend that the screen quality and power are equal to the 3DS, of course. Else the complaints would be more focused on that.

Just something I was thinking about while fighting the urge to shout "IT'S NOT A TABLET!" in every topic.

People call the Wii U's controller a tablet despite the fact that it clearly isn't one, it only kind of looks like one with buttons and a smaller screen. So the same could be said of the Game Boy, which kind of looks like a smartphone with buttons and a smaller screen.
