    Random thought, is this going to have OTG support? Both in Tablet form and Docked mode?

    ok that's not too bad so. Another thought is dual booting Lakka and Android, but then again, lakka may not even be needed if emulator compatibility is as good as I'm hoping it will be.

    Dualbooting is though to be very difficult on android and the developers have strongly advised against it but if it's lakka you want, I am sure emulators will run without any problems on android. ;)

    Good for you. If I use my apps on it and it is too buggy and struggle then I will get a Shield version. I doubt because my favourite streaming app should works fine on this one, I hope.

    Yeah, part of me is even expecting stuff to work even better than Lakka honestly. Had far more time to mature and all that.

    question guys.. will the joycons be recognized as directly connected to the switch or will they be recoginzed as a bluetooth control? I'm asking this because of possible lagging on the inputs... thanks...

    Will this work with output? Angry birds 2 would be great on the big screen.

    yes you can use joycons with android ...open bluetooth on your phone and press the sync button on your joycon (try it with your phone assuming you have an android phone)... but only as standalone controllers not as a pair ... you can also sync ps4 controllers to android (hold home and share to put the controller into pairing mode )

    But the issue with this is the apps/games controls don't always map to the controllers well on android and if the apps developer didn't intend controller support then you need a rooted device and a 3rd party app to adjust your controllers inputs

    @Chary the Shield Tablet is Tegra K1, not X1. Shield TV is X1. ;)

    This is basically what I've been waiting for since the Switch was just hacked. I don't like carrying a separate tablet around, it's why I stopped using my Nexus 7 when phones started to get bigger, didn't seem like the extra inch and a half or so was worth it.
    But I carry the Switch around with me anyway, and I've always thought it would be nice to have a secondary use for it when I'm not using it to play games (which is most of the time TBH, don't play games that often)

    I hope Steam Link works. That and Kodi (or some other media app I can pirate with) are the things I'm most interested in.
    I recently got a GameSir T1s and the Steam Link app works well with that. The bigger screen of the Switch would be nicer though.

    So, this requires CFW and hacking? So far, that hasn't been clarified.

    You need to be able to enter RCM and use the Hekate bootloader to load Android, that's it. You don't need any CFW (like Atmosphere or SX), just RCM and Hekate.

    Well, I guess that's less of a hassle. Good.

    The Google Pixel C had an X1 in it, which released in 2015. And a full speed one, not the underclocked one in the Switch. So yeah, not really.
