NVIDIA confirms 500GB SHIELD Pro, expect launch before May ends

Last week, Amazon showed off the NVIDIA SHIELD and SHIELD Pro. Unfortunately, the SHIELD Pro listing was quickly taken down.

We've seen the signs and NVIDIA could only be preparing for a big launch of the 500GB Pro variant of the SHIELD.

Amazon shows NVIDIA SHIELD, SHIELD Pro, items down for now

We actually now have a glimpse of what NVIDIA is planning with the new NVIDIA SHIELD console, last seen and drooled at by many at the GDC 2015.

NVIDIA is once again shuffling names, this time maybe for the last time. The NVIDIA SHIELD moniker once belonged to what is now known as the SHIELD Portable, a standalone gaming handheld that looked like a gamepad with a built-in tablet on top. Now the name is being used, without specification unlike the SHIELD Tablet, to refer to NVIDIA's MWC 2015 surprise: an Android TV device. OK, maybe it's not all too shocking considering the direction it has been going, but it makes the surprise no less pleasant nonetheless.
