Air 2 or Shield 2?

im debating on buying an Air 2 or a Nvidia shield 2, which according to rumors is set to release this summer. I'm a big fan of emulators & controllers, so I am leaning towards the Shield, but I'd like to hear the TA communities opinion first

Some time ago I got a Shield Portable. I almost forgot I have an iPad since then. Emulation is my main interest and that device seems like it was tailored for me. Portability is also very important to me, so if I had to choose between Shield Portable and Tablet - I'd still go with Portable (despite its lower performace), but if it's emulation you're into - the iPad doesn't seem like a good candidate, in my opinion. Controller quality on the Portable is top-notch. I actually prefer it to the XBox 360 pad.
