We want to thank you for your patience and for sticking with us through the shipment delay of your SHIELD. We have great news to share with you - your SHIELD will ship on July 31st.

The device, which was demoed at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, was originally expected to ship on June 27 but was delayed by and unspecified "mechanical issue" with a "third-party component." Originally priced at $349, the Shield's price was cut to $299.

The Nvidia Shield is a portable gaming system that unites the controller and a 5-inch 1,280x720-pixel touch screen into one single package. The Shield can handle all Google Play apps and stream PC games from Nvidia-based computers through a Wi-Fi connection. It's one of the first to house the much-anticipated Tegra 4 processor and sets itself apart from others with its ability to stream full PC games over a Wi-Fi network.

It also features 16GB of storage, Mini-HDMI, Micro-USB 2.0, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, and a microSD card slot for storage expansion. 802.11n 2x2 MIMO Wi-Fi, integrated speakers, and a headphone jack round out the specifications.
