That's part of why the SHIELD has the best Android-based device battery life while punching very good graphical performance.

Does NVidia make stand alone LTE devices (not LTE in smartphone or tablets) ?
I have this old Huawei usb 3g modem which I sometimes use (my main connection is a huawei wimax modem) and since my ISP is now offering LTE in selected areas, I'd love to have a usb LTE modem.
