NVIDIA to produce K1 powered SHIELD Tablet according to Global Certification Forum
According to a filing with the Global Certification Forum, the next NVIDIA SHIELD won't be a handheld gaming device. Instead, the new SHIELD will be a mid-sized Android tablet. This would probably be the 7.9 inch NVIDIA Mocha that went for a ride on the GFX Benchmark site last May, powered by a K1 CPU. Xiaomi ended up using the reference device for its MiPad.

But there is a chance that the silicon slinger will be offering the slate itself. The company received certification from the Global Certification Forum. The GCF handles certification for devices that use 3G technology.

But before we jump the gun, it has been pointed out that NVIDIA would be using the SHIELD name for the device, which is linked with video game play. So one theory is that the Android tablet would make up half of the unit, which would include a detachable game controller. NVIDIA is expected to hold an event on July 22nd, at which time we should learn the entire story. It might be a coincidence, but it was last July 22nd when NVIDIA launched its original gaming console.
