There's been a lot of discussion regarding Nvidia's upcoming Shield Tablet over the past few months. And now thanks to a cornucopia of leaked slides obtained by the crew over at VideoCardz.com, we know virtually everything there is to know about Nvidia's new gaming machine.
The slides, if legit, leave little to the imagination. The Shield will carry an 8-inch IPS LCD display operating at 1,920 x 1,200 with Nvidia's Tegra K1 SoC under the hood (192 core Kepler GPU, 2.2GHz quad-core A15 CPU) alongside 2GB of RAM.
Storage capacity checks in at either 16GB or 32GB depending on model although a microSD card slot will allow for additional space. Elsewhere, we find a 5-megapixel rear camera and a matching 5-megapixel front-facing shooter, 802.11 a/b/g/n 2x2 MIMO (2.4GHz and 5GHz) Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, GPS, GLONASS and an included stylus.
Battery life is rated at 10 hours of HD video playback from the 19.75 watt hour lithium ion pack.
Pricing starts at $299 for a 16GB with Wi-Fi model. An extra $100 will double the onboard storage to 32GB and net you LTE connectivity. Nvidia will also offer up a controller as a separate accessory priced at $59 while a cover / stand will carry an MSRP of $39.
The publication claims the tablet will be announced on July 22 and hit stores a week later on July 29 in Canada and the US. Availability for Europe is slated for August 14 with additional regions getting the Shield Tablet this fall.
