Tested the shield for almost a day and my impressions.

1) feels like the nexus 7.
2) screen is good but not great. Mipad is better in this aspect.
3) hdmi out is god sent! Amazing console mode.
4) works with Moga. No need spend money on official pad.
5) able to transfer apps to external sdcard is another god sent feature!
6) battery life so far so good. Spent whole day testing without recharge.

Anyone bringing in the official cover? Pls buy one for me!
Let me know if u have lobang for the case. I'm looking for one.

read on the net that it will be "officially" released in USA on 31/Aug.
Guess it is not even released yet.

I went to SLS today to have a custom SP cut up and also had the back of my Shield pasted with custom back SP.

Played with the shield awhile more and noticed that,

1)charging is slow. Maybe it defaults to 1.0A? Need to check more.
2) Whenever the launcher crashes (sometimes) apps that are transferred to external sdcard disappears from the desktop. Bug that should be fixed in next update I guess.
3) I can see pixels on my screen
Maybe I have too many highend stuffs (S5 prime, retina ipad mini and mipad). 1080p doesn't satisfy me now.
4) dreamcast emu works really well. Daytona!!!

difficult.to buy?
Mipad & nvidia Shield are available through Qoo10.

Qoo10 - NVIDIA SHIELD Search Results : (Q·Ranking)

If u insist on a physical store, SL shd have...

I know burlington Sq have mipad.
The nvidia shield on qoo10 doesn't even have a review yet. So currently its not trusted.
