They showed a picture of the Wii U console, with the name Wii U next to the console (not the tablet) before they showed off the tablet.
There is no other reason for someone who's job it is to pay attention to the world of Nintendo to have any second thoughts (or first thoughts) that the Wii U might just be a controller for Wii, other than the reason of incompetence.
A point he made right up top is that the "era of Wii is over - and should be", yet I don't think he makes any distinct points about why it should be over, unless we should just assume that the Wii deserves to be dying because of how Nintendo has stopped focusing on it the past year, which is an analysis of the Wii as a console, not the Wii as a name.
