Unannounced Nvidia Shield Tablet shows up
posted by Florin T. / Jul 17, 2014, 2:07 PM
It looks like Nvidia’s second Android tablet, apparently called Shield Tablet, is ready for an official announcement. At least that’s what @evleaks is suggesting today with a press render that allegedly shows the Nvidia Shield slate.
Borrowing its name from the Shield handheld game console that was released in 2013, the new tablet will likely use Nvidia’s new and powerful Tegra K1 chipset. Looks-wise, the Shield Tablet follows the design language set by the Nvidia Tegra Note 7 slate from last year, having stereo speakers on each side of the display. It’s said that the display measures 7.9 inches, and may offer a 2,048 x 1,536 pixel resolution - but we can’t confirm this yet. Android 4.4 KitKat is expected to be on board, while the rest of the tablet’s features remain a mystery for now.
Since the Tegra Note 7 was launched in various markets around the world (under different names), we’re expecting the Shield Tablet to be widely available as well. But we’ll just have to wait for Nvidia to announce the device before knowing anything for sure.

Tegra is so underrated, the K1 is doing a lot better than the 4 at least.

Based from the initial MiPad reviews, the K1 is a bit of a battery hog, no wonder Xiaomi stuffed a huge 6700mAh in there. Plus Id like to see how the K1 controls thermal throttling, all that power is useless if it heats up easily

Can't confirm/disconfirm 2048*1536? Umm... You have eyes, right? That pic clearly shows a wide-screen tablet... Only apple and Chinese knockoff iPads (miipad) use the retro 4:3 aspect ratio

The design seems to be a collaboration with HTC. Would want the Nexus 8 to look the same if not better.

Yes yes yes. Just release it because it will take more 2-3 months for us to get. Also mipad going to launch soon. Just price it right nvidia. I would definitely buy shield tablet over mipad because of quick updates,stock android & much more development support :D
