Without games, how does Nintendo plan to leverage smartphones?

Following a report in Japanese newspaper Nikkei citing Nintendo is preparing a smartphone application that will make available game trailers and mini games based on 3DS and Wii U games, the company has issued a comment that “there are no plans to offer mini games on smartphone devices”.

The announcement for this smartphone application was to said to occur during an investor meeting scheduled later this week. However, with Nintendo denying rumours of a mini game enabled smartphone application, the question on everyone’s mind is, how will the company leverage the smartphone market? (Nintendo, Wii U)

Probably for advertisement purposes and for getting a better feel for the kinds of games that the mobile market is playing so that they can make similar experiences for the Wii U and 3DS.
You know, putting out "feelers" so that they'll have a better game plan for re-supporting the people that went from Wii to Mobile, or something of that nature.
Just a guess, though.
For all we know, they could just be using it for more Miiverse options or for putting out some public opinion polls on various often-visited mobile sites.

Edit: Wow, a disagree already.
Is that you, Mr. Stalker?
Come out and play~~~
