NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet unofficially unveiled, priced at $299 USD

While there have been leaks about an upcoming gaming tablet by NVIDIA, this leak is probably the most comprehensive and detailed. The leaked documents shows the tablet, its specifications, and a couple of its accessories. This will be NVIDIA's latest attempt at a portable gaming device, a follow-up to last year's SHIELD.

According to VideoCardz, the site has obtained some interesting details and pictures of the unreleased SHIELD Tablet that will be launching on July 22nd, 2014. The tablet will be powered by an NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor, 2GB RAM, and have an 8" screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1200. Upon its release, there will two be versions of the tablet, a 16GB model that will cost $299 USD and a 32GB model with 4G LTE that will cost $399 USD.

If that wasn’t enough, the tablet will also have 5MP front and rear camera, dual front-facing speakers, and provide 10 hours of video playback. The device will also have its own wireless controller and tablet cover, sold separately, of course.

Although none of this is official yet, the SHIELD Tablet should arrive in the U.S. on July 22nd, with availability in Europe sometime in August 2014. Other parts of the world will have to wait a bit longer as the leaked material shows a vague, Fall 2014 release.

Why are people still using video playback as a benchmark? We are talking about accelerated decoding, right? Don't all (but a few, and i can't think of any) popular SoCs have that?

Also 16GB for a gaming device? Are you kidding? Also UHS-I SD cards can barely outspeed a platter disk, when/if they do.

I don't see the point in this. Just get a bluetooth controller and one of those clip-on things to put your phone in. Especially seems impractical since this is a tablet -- can't use it on the move, despite easy portability from point A to point B.

i hope this cover can withstand missiles to justify its price!
the controller can be cheaper as well.

Seems to be priced consistently with most other 1st part covers that also serve as a kick stands.
