With Nintendo looking to set up a new third pillar in the Nintendo ecosystem to exist beside the Wii U & 3DS, like the DS was originaly with the Gamecude & Gameboy, what should we expect from the Nintendo QL?

I don't think the DS was ever supposed to coexist with the Gameboy, it was intended as the next gen replacement.

Not exactualy, it was said to be intended to coexist because Nintendo didn't want to risk destroting the Gameboy brand with the unproven DS brand, but you're right that it was truely ment to replace it.

All that "third pillar" stuff was pre damage control in case the DS bombed they could just say it was an experiment and never meant to take the place of Gameboy. They did something similiar with the Wii saying it wasn't really supposed to be direct competition with the PS3/360 in case it didn't do well.
