Should make it removable, they would make some extra money selling extended batteries.
Whilst I generally do prefer removable batteries, the reality is removable = smaller, which for such a power hungry device is an issue. Anyway, it was obvious the battery wasn't removable from the press shots we've already seen.

The only info about the battery: DC 3.7V, just like every single-cell Li-ion battery, ever.
Fixed.

Hmm, looks like it support gigabit ethernet adaptors too (look at item "F"). Now the question is will it support generic adaptors or just an official peripheral.
The official nintendo adapter is a basic off the shelf chipset made by one manufacturer. Pretty much every LAN adapter on the market for use with computers uses the same chipset. For example, the two I have by two different manufacturers that I used on my computers are both compatible with the Wii and Wii U.

Some interesting stuff in there. From a cursory reading:

  • Switch's model no is HAC-001, the dock/AC adaptor is HAC-002, game card is HAC-008 and the joy-cons seems to be HAC-015 and HAC-016 (not sure which is which, though).
  • The impression I get is that the A/C adaptor is in the dock, as it doesn't mention them separately, although I'm not 100% sure.
    Edit: Maybe not. They also mention a SDEV Cradle (HAT-003) which may be a stand-in for the dock (in which case the consumer version of the dock is likely HAC-003).
  • "AC Adapter input: AC 100 – 240 V, 50 / 60 Hz, 1 A" is a power brick with worldwide compatibility. This heavily points towards the console being region-free.
  • "AC Adapter output: DC 5 V – DC 15 V, 2.6 A" means the maximum total power draw of Switch is 39W, although obviously that would just be during charging (it's possible that it uses the 15V USB-C spec while charging and drops down to 5V when fully charged and running a game, but that's just my speculation). If so, it should charge pretty quickly (although this depends on the battery as well).
  • Support for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wifi, including 802.11ac MIMO.
  • Bluetooth support, obviously enough. The existence of a low energy mode means Bluetooth 4.0 or later.

Item F is this peripheral from Logitech that uses USB 3.0. Not sure if it's something just used to test the Wii LAN adapter or if they tested it with a generic adapter.

I hope so, especially with the platform being region free.

The idea of platforms being region locked needs to be done away with completely.

Pro and Slim both have 5GHZ.

Its only OG PS4 that does not have it
Saying that they support 5GHz means very little though. It could mean that they support 802.11n or even 802.11a @ 5GHz, which are pretty old standards, especially 802.11a.

Nope, The Wii U power brick has worldwide compatibility as well. This confirms nothing sadly.
