Personally I think Tablet COULD have been a great idea if they did it right.

It should of been a remodeled 2DS has a controller and compatible with all 3DS's. With a model for people to buy who already had a 3DS that was super cheap. But that's just a pet peve of mine....

Lists idea below you feel Nintendo should do with it ^_^

What Tablet?
Don't know about you, but I got nothing that has tablet functionality in the box.

So as there is no tablet in the box how could Nintendo use functionality of an imaginary peripheral

Surely he must mean the Gamepad.

Whoever voted for 100% should be slapped in the face.

Then he surely must know that there are games that use every feature on it.
Nintendoland, and Game & Wario are 2. Plus They shown a quite a few games that will use it that are coming up.

I really don't understand people as on the Wii people complained they shoehorned waggle controls into everything making the games bad (I am one of those people), but now Nintendo isn't show horning gamepad use into every game they complain...
Seriously people don't know what they want. Look at the DS, and 3DS honestly I'd say 70%-80% of games I've played on it don't make any real use of the 2nd screen, but I don't see people complaining they need to remove it.

Come at me bro. As of this moment - with my limited knowledge of video game development -
Nintendo couldn't possibly find anymore innovative uses in it.

This may change in the future however.

They could've just used it like the DS, showing all the HUD and menus on the tablet or just gimmicky mini-games on the tablet.

The only real flaw in gamepad implementation is overreach.

It demands that I somehow physically rotate my torso to point behind the couch, just because there's a gyro in there, despite having two perfectly serviceable analog sticks that can do the same thing.
(Lego City, Nintendoland).

It demands I swap my view between both screens, when I really shouldn't take my focus off of the main (tv) screen (Mario Kart 8)

It demands I smear fingerprints all over the damn thing, instead of pressing down twice on the dpad, then hitting A, or using any of the fourteen available buttons, to perform some action.
(pretty much everything, except Eshop for some reason)
