"The NVIDIA SHIELD is potentially the next evolution of mobile gaming. The SHIELD in a nutshell is a blend of mobile android devices, PC gaming, and console gaming. When the NVIDIA SHIELD first came out last year, it was carrying a price tag of $299, eventually that dropped to $249 and that remains the current price for the SHIELD. Though for right now through the end of April NVIDIA has lowered the price to $199 to celebrate the latest and greatest over the air update that we announced last week here."

Tempting, but the price of the Shield is deceptive, since you'll almost certainly need a $100+ dual-band wireless router to take advantage of game streaming...

Having to leave your PC on is just a waste of power & money.

Wireless data plans aren't cheap either $100+ a month.

Does it have the K1, or is Nvidia just trying to empty the warehouse for the really new stuff? Where the hell are those Denver cores, and when is the K1(any K1 SKU) expected to make an appearence! Should we ready the KY jelly for some more rectal rebranding!
