Nvidia SHIELD Unboxing – XDA Developer TV
Back at CES, Nvidia announced a unique Android Device. It wasn’t a tablet. It wasn’t a phone. It wasn’t a phablet. It was SHIELD. As XDA Developer TV Producer Jordan talked about earlier, SHIELD is a gaming device poised to really make use of Nvidia’s next flagship SoC, the Tegra 4.
Designed to resemble a standard gaming controller, SHIELD is intended to shake up the drab Android gaming ecosystem, and Nvidia is doing what they can to deliver a great product. In addition, the device allows you to stream PC games as long as you have the appropriate video card. Jordan has gotten his hands on a SHIELD unit, and he’s here to give you an unboxing as well as his first impressions. Pull up a chair and check out this video.
