Nvidia has launched it’s own gaming tablet dubbed as Nvidia Shield. Currently, the tablet is only available as a WiFi version, but it seems we may get to see the 4G LTE compatible Nvidia Shield tablet in the coming weeks. Recently, we heard about the Nvidia Shield tablet with 4G connectivity with 32GB storage on board. If it turns out to be real, it should be compatible with AT&T 4G and HSPA+ network in the US.

Rest of the specifications should remain the same, there’s an 8-inch display sporting resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, with aNVIDiA’s 2.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A15 quad-core processor with 192-core Kepler graphics. The tablet features a 5MP front and rear camera for photos and videos, 802.11n 2×2 Mimo dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI output, 4K video support, and runs Android 4.4.2 Kitkat as its operating system.

There are several games optimized to work well with the NVIDIA Shield tablet, but users can use NVIDIA GameStream technology to stream PC games to your device. Nvidia has also listed the 4G LTE version of the Shield tablet on their website. While the price of the WiFi only 16GB model is $299, the 32GB LTE version is going to cost a little higher — $399, but you cannot just buy it right now.
