SHIELD isn't like most portable gaming devices, instead resembling an actual portable console. The controller is attached to a flip-up 720p HD display, which is all powered by Android and a Tegra 4 mobile processor.
The SHIELD will be available at GameStop, Micro Center and Canada Computers locations starting in June, retailing for $349. Pre-orders will go live on May 20th, next Monday, at shield.nvidia.com as well as partner sites.
