Steam Deck customers have begun to receive their devices, although the launch of Valve's new device is taking place in a staggered fashion. In the meantime, a new device has just been unveiled that follows a similar path to the machine from the creators of Half-Life: Alyx. This is the NZXT H-AND, which, as in the case of Deck, is a PC in the guise of a portable console. The particularity that separates it from Valve's version is that it has a removable keyboard, "Can you handle it?", says its slogan.
First features confirmed
The first details have come to light, as well as a first glimpse in the form of a minute-long trailer, which shows the design in detail. At the moment, two important data are unknown: first, its price, one of the crucial points in this type of device; second, the release date. For the moment, these are the first features that have been shared.
Unlike Steam Deck, which has a 7-inch screen (like Nintendo Switch OLED), the NZXT H-AND screen is considerably larger. It remains to be seen how those 12 inches will translate in terms of ergonomics, size and weight. After all, the goal is to be able to take the hardware anywhere - will a backpack be necessary?
If you are one of those who have purchased a Steam Deck and have not yet received it, you should know that the final shipments of the first wave will be made shortly. Valve will then start shipping the consoles to customers who expect to receive the device during the second quarter, following the same procedure. In other words, a confirmation email will be sent to complete the purchase.
