Can I learn CUDA on a Nvidia Shield?

I am new to CUDA and I do not have a CUDA capable laptop so I am looking for a solution. The Shield (http://shield.nvidia.com/) looks like an awesome addition to a living room but can I learn to code CUDA on it? It certainly has the required hardware but I am unfamiliar with Android and I would like to confirm if it is possible to remote into the Shield and install Vim and the necessary libraries to compile and run example programs.

I’m afraid you can’t develop apps on SHIELD itself.
