We mentioned it a few days ago, and this time it’s finished, Nvidia has just made his Shield available for pre-order.
There are no miracles in the meantime, the Shield has not changed the price and its availabel at price of $ 349 per copy.
To recap, the Nvidia Shield is handheld developed by Nvidia and offers many features.
Thus, the 5-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels and the controls gaming solution are operating on Android. It has that quite muscular platform: Nvidia Tegra 4 to 72 core GPU and 4 cores CPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and various connectors and a GPS chip.
From this perspective, the Shield is not an Android smartphone and it does not allow user to make phone calls over mobile networks and it is limited on which applications and games it can use on Android platform and the Tegra Zone from Nvidia.
nVidia have added another very cool feature to the console: it allows you to connect over Wi-Fi to a PC for video streaming so you can play your favorite PC games directly to the console. A point well highlighted by Nvidia to attract players, but we still doubt the usefulness.
However, Nvidia wants to be very confident and has launched its pre-orders, which are limited to 4 copies per person, evidence of the optimism of the firm.
Some applications will be available directly from the console, and delivery is expected at the end of June, but only in the U.S. and Canada.
Next to these two countries other had not been specified so far, and it will take a few more days to see Nvidia shows his interest in the European market. If you live in U.S. or Canada you can pre-order up to 4 copies for yourself from this website.
