Nvidia's Shield Tablet Available For Pre-Order Now, Releasing July 29
Integrated Twitch streaming makes taking your game on the road a breeze.
Nvidia announced a brand new addition to its line of Shield products today: the Nvidia Shield Tablet. It's not exactly surprising, given the abundance of tablets on the market right now, but you can pre-order the tablet now for $299, with the option to add a wireless controller for $59.
The $299 covers the 16GB wifi version, but you can nab a 32GB LTE version for $399. The tablets sport a Tegra K1 192 core GPU, 2GB of RAM with a Cortex A15 CPU, front-facing speakers, and a multitouch display. Perhaps the best feature is the fact that it will be available as soon as July 29.
The tablet will be the first mobile device to integrate Twitch streaming as well, with Twitch offering a mobile SDK for developers to use. You've also got a 5MP camera, microphone, and accompanying chat overlay to make streaming your games effortless.
The Shield Tablet looks as though it's making great strides in closing the loop between mobile gamers and console gamers, making streaming easier and more accessible to everyone.
