NVIDIA Shield Tablet leaked in picture

NVIDIA Shield Tablet leaked in pictureRemember the original NVIDIA Shield? It was – and indeed still is – a portable gaming thingy with a built-in controller capable of streaming PC titles and playing Android games.

Its successor, the NVIDIA Shield Tablet, has been leaked in picture format, revealing a device that recalls the HTC One M8, and – appropriately enough – the NVIDIA Tegra Note 7.

The picture is revealed by Even Nelson Blass aka @evleaks, and needless to say he writes absolutely nothing beyond the headline, which reads simply: “NVIDIA Shield Tablet, 2014.”

So, what can we tell from the picture? Well, we have gunmetal grey colouring, stereo speakers on the left and right (sitting in portrait), and what appears to be a front camera at the top.

Clearly there’s no controller attached to the NVIDIA Shield Tablet, but presumably there’ll be some sort of official accessory to avoid having to use touch controls exclusively. And carrying the Shield moniker, it’s probably safe to assume gaming is the focus here.

Rumoured NVIDIA Shield Tablet specs include a 7.9in display, 2GB of RAM, and a quad-core Tegra K1 processor.

We’re not sure when the NVIDIA Shield Tablet might launch, but there have been hints that it’ll arrive in time for Christmas.

My Tegra Note 7 isn't up to scratch atm now it's been sent to fix twice already.

Problem with the USB and charging.

Hope this one is built better.

Leaked slides seem to suggest that theres also something called a shield portable.


Id guess that Nvidia are releasing both a tablet and another all in one shield type design this time round. To me looks like quite a good move, the shield is a better design for "on the go" and more specific gaminf device where as the tablet is better for someone looking for a more multipurpose device, i am certainly tempted to switch from my iPad mini to this
