We usually don't speculate endlessly about rumors, but occasionally some surface that seem interesting. From the NeoGAF post:

"The interesting part is that the article starts by discussing Nintendo's next platform - the one Iwata codenamed NX. They have an insider source who claims that the OS for the platform will be Android based, and that it is a paradigm shift for Nintendo business-wise. The source goes on to say that when third parties abandoned Nintendo's WiiU one by one, it caused turning point in the company. So while they have had a philosophy of developing their own software and hardware concepts internally for all these years, they are now prepared to embrace a more open platform with Android, to allow developers more flexibility in making content that can also be on smartphones and tablets."

The NeoGAF thread cites a supposed Japanese leak that claims Nintendo will be moving to Android for their base platform because of lack of third party support. If this happens, in my eyes, it will make Nintendo one of the more compelling gaming platforms. What do you think, if Nintendo moves to Android what would this mean for you? Would it be good for Nintendo or gaming in general?
