Bad news for would-be Shield buyers, or those who pre-ordered: NVIDIA's first Android device (first consumer electronic, really) has been delayed. The reason? An unspecified "mechanical issue" with early units that was spotted during the quality assurance process. NVIDIA claims to be working with the vendor responsible for the issue, but at this point the most they're willing to promise is a revised ship date some time in July.
The official statement, if you're curious, is below.
