The NVIDIA Shield Tablet is probably one of these best, if not the best, Android based gaming devices on the market. You get the best of a multitude of worlds. You get your Android fix on a 8-inch tablet, you get impressive hardware for gaming and multi-tasking, you get a dedicated kickass controller and you can stream your PC games directly to it. Heck, you can even connect it to your TV for a bigger gaming experience in 4K if you wanted to. One small caveat that might have kept some from buying it though is that the current model is Wi-Fi only. At launch there was mention of a LTE model, but it hasn’t hit the shelves just yet.
It isn’t a secret that there was a LTE model coming, but it would seem that it is closer at hand than it was when the Wi-Fi model was launched in July. Now that the FCC has the device filing, it should be officially available pretty darn soon. You can easily argue having a hotspots and a memory card, which most of us already have, will be the same thing as the upcoming device. You would be somewhat correct. It all depends on your use though I suppose.
Direct yourself over to the NVIDIA Shield tablet page if you want to get yourself the notification list. And by all means, let us know if you are planning to by this when it does go live.
