Project SHIELD, the breakout hit of CES, continues to rack up awards.

Pocket-lint called Project SHIELD the show’s “Best Gadget.” And Computeractive named Project SHIELD the “Best Gaming Device” at the show.

Mobile Geeks, Gotta Be Mobile and Computeractive join Popular Science, LAPTOP Magazine, Stuff, Tech Radar, and TechnoBuffalo who have all recognized SHIELD.

Since we unveiled SHIELD Sunday evening, the Android gaming device has been mentioned in hundreds of news reports, and our booth has been swarming with gaming enthusiasts eager to learn more. More than a thousand people are visiting our booth on the show floor every hour.

In addition to Project SHIELD, CNET presented its “Best of Show Award”  to the Razer Edge, a gaming tablet built using NVIDIA’s GeForce GT 640M LE.

The Edge also won a CNET “Best of CES Award,” in the gaming category, and CNET’s “People’s Voice,” award, which is determined by visitors to CNET’s website.
