New 3DS instead of the gamepad?!

Personally I love the gamepad but after watching the Gamespot @ Pax video it got me thinking. Thoughts?

Would be more of an incentive for me to upgrade

There's nothing preventing it. It now has all the necessary controls (except clickable sticks, as far as we know - and these could perhaps be assigned elsewhere), although touch might be a little awkward since the touchscreen on the 3DS isn't 16:9 and isn't the primary screen.

I think that if the New 3DS could be used as a GamePad substitute, Nintendo would have mentioned it, so I don't think it's very likely to happen, but it could be done if Nintendo really wanted, and probably would work well enough.
