Your latest rumor supposedly comes from VDP, Video Product Distributors. The site needs a login to access content, which conveniently makes it hard to check this info. Supposedly, the site contains the following information.
WIIU SYSTEM - GM
WIIU SYSTEM W/ - GM
WIIU SYSTEM 349 W/ - GM
That would indicate 3 SKUs, all with a Nov. 11th release date. You can see the supposed footage from the site here (thanks LegendaryFusion!)
