A few days ago I reported on a massive leak that supposedly revealed a new SHIELD Tablet coming from NVIDIA. Well, you can throw that “supposedly” right out the window, because the SHIELD Tablet is very real and ready to be pre-ordered.
The controller isn’t just for games; it can navigate parts of Android as well. The tablet can also be used with a stylus. The original SHIELD is now called now called the Shield Portable, which is funny considering that this new tablet is portable as well.
The tablet will support Twitch streaming of up to 720p, so you can show off your gaming skills (or comedic lack thereof) in crisp high definition. You can even add your own commentary with picture-in-picture via the 5MP front-facing camera and a headset.
You can pre-order the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet today at $299 for the 16GB Wi-Fi model or $399 for the 32GB LTE model. The controller retails for $59 and the SHIELD tablet cover can be had for $39. The US will get the tablets first on July 29, then Europe on August 14, before shipping to other markets later in the fall. Be sure to check out the full press release below for all the juicy details, then scroll further for images.
