Nintendo's new console-tab

By Simon Sharwood, 21 Oct 2016

Nintendo's announced its new “Switch”, a console that's also a tablet.

As depicted in the video below, the Switch will offer a dock that connects to your tellie and puts games on the big screen. The dock conceals the device's own screen, but if you take it out of the dock, you can carry on playing the very same game.

Switch's controllers will also detach from the table to offer wireless game control.

Nintendo says the device will arrive in March 2017, but hasn't disclosed the price.
