So you can get Nvidia streaming, and a decent hand held Android gaming experience for about $300. I would assume that you get the rest of the Android experience as well, including Netflix and the like.

Chip: Tegra 4
Display: 5" 720p with multitouch
Audio: Built in speakers and headphone jack
Network: Wifi
Memory: 16gb
Misc: GPS, Bluetooth, HDMI output and microSD storage.

    I would probably buy this over the Shield too. The Tegra 4 is going to be noticeably faster, but it has pretty much the same feature set as the Tegra 3.

    I was going to buy this if it was somewhere along the $100 range...But since the consumer version of Occulus Rift is supposed to be less than $300, I would use my money on that instead....

    Edit : You guys are also missing the point of the shield.  You can use your PC with an NVIDIA graphics card and stream your game to that Shield just like how you can remote play on your Ps3+ Vita

    Trying to figure out the point of this device other than just to show it off.

    Too bad android is plagued with f2p games with overpriced cash shops. Otherwise i might have been interested in a device like that.

    That will be a rare collector's item in a couple years.

    I always thought some kind of iOS console could be great. The support they have now gaming wise could be expanded 10 fold to include a whole new caliber of game designed for a superior device compared to their mobile units. Or even a mobile gaming device with actual buttons would do well I think. I have so many games on my iPad and iPhone I think "damn this would be awesome with real buttons on my PS Vita". Oh well...
