Nintendo NX tip: beefy handheld with wireless TV connection

Given how Nintendo's performance in the hardware area has been rather disappointing these past years, it is understandable that a lot of attention, which includes speculation and anonymous insider tips, is being lavished on the promised Nintendo NX.
