    According to an Engadget story, Nintendo filed a patent in 2001 for "Electronic apparatus having game and telephone functions"

    Could they still be interested in a mobile phone + games machine 'all-in-one' solution?

    my first impressions were "wow, that looks cool". Maybe because it looks a lot like my current cell phone I use. :p

    I would hate to have that much plastic between my hand and the D-pad. Good to see it never came to fruition, really.
