    It's definitely not a TABLET, for say. It's a hybrid handheld/home console.

    the choices dont even make sence, it should be a portable console or a home console, becuase a tablet it is not lol.

    Tablets play games but their primary goal is not to play games same way a pc plays games but that is not the primary usage of a pc or else for that defenition pcs are consoles and consoles are pcs lol.

    HYBRID SYSTEM! CONSOLE/PORTABLE, it is that. (How many more people will ask this) If it bothers you that much, then call it what you want and ignore people like me or any others who will say otherwise. :P

    Clearly Nintendo just copied Sega yet again, proving once again that they can't innovate and thus Appbox One is superior.

    • Handheld form factor with built-in color LCD
    • Runs full Sega Genesis console games
    • Has a second controller port
    • Can connect to a TV
    • Uses an off-the-shelf CPU
    • Has 3-hour battery life

    i gave my votes to both because i could vote 2, and i feel kind of trolled by the op XD
    it is both mate !

    i sometimes just love the gimick (because it works) so i just pull out the joy cons off the switch screen and place the screen (tablet) onto my bed or something then i play.

    i love mk8d on the switch screen, it looks just like tv mode.
    so damn impressed by it, nintendo stole my money twice for the same game, but i have no complaints as i love the game.

    can't wait for SSB on my switch !

    It's simply not a home console, calling it a home console is fucking stupid.
    The entire system is in the tablet, the controls are there, the screen is there, the speakers are there, everything.

    It simply has a dock that outputs image and audio to an external display.

    Tablets run Android and lack telephony circuits, which is in contrast to Ipads, Iphones, Kindles, smartphones, and Switches.

    If you know about the new Samsung Galaxy s8 and its dex feature (docking the phone and connecting it to monitor, keyboard, mouse so to use it as a kind of android mini pc), this would be quite a similar question - is the Galaxy s8 a mobile phone or a desktop pc B-)

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    Why don't you ask Nintendo ? They have an accurate answer. :)

    People calling it a tablet have no clue what a tablet is. I wouldn't call it exactly a home console though
