NVIDIA SHIELD open Android 4.2 home screen

Last week we got the good news that NVIDIA's SHIELD gaming handheld was receiving a price cut to $299 and was slated to launch on June 27, but today we've gotten a bit of bad news to balance that out. NVIDIA just announced that shipments of the SHIELD have been delayed into July so that the company can address a "mechanical issue" that was discovered during the final testing of the device. The Tegra-maker hasn't provided much information about exactly what the problem is, but it does say that it relates to a third-party component and that it's working with that supplier to get that part improved.

As for a new ship date, NVIDIA has only said that the SHIELD is now expected to ship out in July, but it promises to share a precise date next month. The news is definitely a bummer for anyone that's been eagerly awaiting the arrival of their Android 4.2-powered SHIELD, especially because it comes less than a week after the handheld's price cut and just a day before the SHIELD's former launch date. It's not clear exactly how far into July this delay will take the SHIELD's launch, but with July just a few days away at this point, at least the delay shouldn't take more than a month. Have any of you pre-ordered an NVIDIA SHIELD?
