NVIDIA's new Shield is a tablet built for gaming

It's now a proper tablet...

Shield Tablet dumps the original Shield's 5-inch screen in favor of a bigger 8-inch, 1080p display, swaps the original Tegra 4 in favor of K1, and drops the controller bit entirely. Should you wish to pair a controller with Shield Tablet -- and NVIDIA thinks you should -- NVIDIA's making one (it's even got WiFi Direct for lower latency than Bluetooth), but it's totally optional and doesn't come packed in with the tablet.

NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC
8-inch "Full HD" screen (1920 x 1200, IPS LCD display)
Front-facing stereo speakers (think: HTC One)
5MP front-and-rear facing cameras
Directstylus 2
16/32GB of internal storage, expandable to 128GB via microSD
WiFI a/b/g/n, Optional LTE
19.75 Watt hour Lithium Ion battery

The base model -- 16GB of internal storage, no LTE -- costs $299, while 32GB of internal storage and LTE adds another $100. The gamepad is another $59, and the cover (which you'll need if you want to use Shield Tablet as a game screen) is another $39. All that is to say that you could spend $500 in total on Shield Tablet.
