Gizmodo has published a detailed article explaining how the Switch works and what it can do:

In just a couple of short months, Nintendo’s first console since 2012 will be here. Nintendo made the console’s existence known last October, but until tonight was completely mum on any and all details. Now we know a lot more about the company’s shape-shifting console. So here are the facts...

The Verge has details of the specifications:

The Nintendo Switch device offers a 6.2-inch, 720p multitouch display that runs at a 1280 x 720 resolution when used in a handheld mode. When docked, the Switch is capable of outputting full 1080p visuals through an HDMI connection to an attached TV. Nintendo says that the Switch runs off a custom Nvidia Tegra processor, but hasn’t released more specific details.

Great idea, just not for me. I hope they do well with it as the Wii U failed pretty miserably by all accounts.
