    is there potential for some sort of hack on the controller. Is a it portibale gaming system in itself, or is it jsut a controller that streams the image?

    Is there potential to run an android ios partition or something like iPad/Kindle Apps.? theoretically, not currently.

    apart from TV remote functionality, which is the gamepad's own feature, all it does is streaming image

    What could be potentially interesting, however, is once a Wii U hack is released, if one could install android onto say, a flash drive, and boot it in Wii U mode. Full image and touch control on the gamepad, and also full image on your big, beautiful HD screen for anything from gaming to internet browsing and video. I don't know if it would be feasible, but getting it to display a keyboard on the gamepad and not on the screen would be fantastic as well. Move over, Ouya ;)
