But the real question is, why can't it even fold?

It's a sign of things to come.  Think, Nintendo combines the old GBA form with the newer iPad form.  Look up my post correctly predicting the Wii U controller to see what I mean. 

I suspect the next iteration will not fold and be an amalgam of the Wii U and 2DS with a throwback and a new feature.  Maybe they'll go back to 3D or analog triggers and/or add something cheap and new like GPS, head/eye tracking, or a vitality sensor.  Remind me when we a closer to a new handheld and I'll try to make a better prediction. 

Edit:  To save searching:  http://themushroomkingdom.net/board/index.php?topic=13669.msg597805#msg597805  Also, remind me when I have had the appropriate amount of prognosticary liquid.

Also, if you drop it it'll be less likely to break apart.

I hope they don't get rid of folding. I'll never get any StreetPasses (if they still do that next generation) if it's a 7-inch tablet that can't fit in a pocket. The only time I get StreetPasses is when I'm at work.

I've received exactly four StreetPasses since getting the 3DS.

It's actually one giant screen, partially covered up by the shell to look like the 3DS screens. Knowing this, the chain of logic behind the design of this thing is perhaps more clear:

We need a super cheap version of the 3DS --> One screen is cheaper to produce than two + 2D screen is cheaper than 3D --> all 2D and no hinge

One giant screen with the bottom being  a touchscreen? So is the top also a touchscreen covered in glass but with no sensors?

This is just a cheap marketing technique

How is releasing an entire system a "marketing technique"?
