It seems like a pretty hard sell with all the smartphones and tablets out there competing.

Not the same market. This thing is to play Steam games in the home, remotely, if someone else is using the PC. That's it. Rich bitch device.

It just a dedicated splashtop device. I do this right now with my Xperia Z tablet and 360 controller......... with my AMD GPU, lol.

Close, but not the same thing. You cannot stream full pc games in 720p from your Steam library and obviously holding your tablet and a controller at the same time is going to be very clumsy to do in a recliner chair.

Whether it's worth $300 for all that, idk up to each person.

Doesn't matter now.... due to the fact that they should be supporting this device instead of announcing yet more new iterations of Tegra namely 5 and 6.

I could several good reasons to get this vs just sticking with your phone and then of course, several for why not to get it.

Pros: if you don't have a laptop, this is a great way to stream high def games from Steam library to this device. Plus if you don't have a wifi signal on the go, you can still play any android game. The speakers, controller, and Tenga 4 chip and all upgrades to what any cell phone can do. You can play it in your bed or on a recliner vs hunched over at a computer desk.

Cons: price and you have to own a Nvidia gpu 650 or higher to stream games.
