Things of concern:

How if at all does the Switch connect to Wii U and 3DS owners’ existing accounts?

We have nothing to announce at this time.

Will the Switch be compatible with existing Virtual Console purchases?

We have nothing to announce at this time.

Will the Switch have its own library of Virtual Console games that starts from scratch, or will it bring over the Virtual Console library from 3DS and Wii U?

We have nothing to announce at this time.

How will SNES online functionality work? Which games will it support?

We have nothing to announce at this time.

Is there a trophy or achievements system?

We have nothing to announce at this time.

Will Switch support Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, HBO Go, or any other streaming services?

All of our efforts have gone toward making the Nintendo Switch system an amazing dedicated video game platform, so it will not support any video-streaming services at launch. However, support for video-streaming services is being considered for a future update.

 

How much time did they spent developing this thing?

If they would've have nothing to offer in this regard, the answer would look like Netflix and stuff. But they say they have nothing to announce. This more says to me they keep features regarding Online/Virtual Console and so on under covers to reveal at a later point.

These are basic housekeeping things for a console. Imagine if Microsoft is unwilling to say whether your Xbox Live account will transfer over from the Xbox 360. They're not special features, they're suppose to be the norm and it is disappointing that Nintendo can't even keep up with the basics. For instance, how do you lose the ability to stream Netflix in the evolution from the Wii U to the Switch? Things are suppose to progress, not regress.
