A Nintendo software engineer has claimed that the company is working on an Android-based tablet.
Nando Monterazo tweeted that he was "experimenting with a tablet of Nintendo, the system is based on Android, fully modified and unified as a database of the tablet."
The tweet was one of several mentioning the device, all of which were later deleted.
Monterazo, who claimed to be testing the tablet’s “communication environment”, added that the device wouldn’t be gaming-focused, but would instead be for “educational games” only.
Nintendo has not released any further comments regarding the rumoured tablet.
