I suppose it's asking too much for the Shield Portable to be compatible with the Shield Controller, huh? At any rate most Android devices including Shields should be compatible with Bluetooth mice/touchpads/trackballs/whatnot.

Well, the portable is essentially a Shield Controller with a flip top screen attached, so that would be pretty redundant under most circumstances. That being the case it probably works without a hitch.

I've been pointed towards a very cool piece of software that fixes this problem though, AppGround IO's Serverless Bluetooth Keyboard & Mouse. Like it says on the tin, it turns an android phone or tablet into a generic wireless keyboard and touchpad mouse, with options for media buttons, back, home and menu, etc. Accidentally launching Chrome no longer feels like falling into a pit on the Atari ET cart, and if I buy a decent bluetooth dongle I'll have those devices in my pocket for troubleshooting at all times and look CRAZY CYBERPHREAK HAXX PRO.
