          Nvidia Shield is an upcoming android (Jelly Bean)  based handheld gaming console from Nvidia which is currently available for pre-order for 349USD. The gaming console looks similar to Xbox 360 controller, but it comes with additional flip-up 5inch 720p (1280×720) display with built in integrated stereo speakers  and microphone. The amazing feature of Shield is that we can stream the games present in the GTX systems directly to Shield through WiFi with minimal latency.
