Sales of Nvidia's Android-powered gaming handheld, the Nvidia Shield
, have inspired confidence in the platform's future from Nvidia's leaders, GamesIndustry international reports
Senior Director of Investor Relations Chris Evenden describes sales as "great" and says "everything that we shipped so far has sold out ... we're just starting to ramp production."
Despite Nvidia's optimism for the Shield, the company's Q2 reports show a 6.4 percent drop in revenue and a 19 percent decline in net income year-over-year. Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang says the company expects a "strong second half" of the year due to the Shield launching outside of the U.S. and the introduction of more Tegra 4-powered devices to the market.
