Nvidia Shield Tablet Leaks
Rumors of a Nvidia Slate-Style Shield 2 have been floating around for a while, now a leaker has released an image of this gaming tablet viewed from the front. From here we see a screen with controller based games, suggesting that this unit can be attached and detached from a controller. This in effect makes the Shield Tablet a full on tablet and a gaming handheld/streamer.
One of the main flaws of the current Shield is that it isn't really usable as a tablet, where the controller adds unneeded weight and can block easy use of the touch screen. With the shield 2 this problem seems to be resolved.
Spec wise this is what we know. The screen is 7.9 inches, the tablet utilizes Nvidia'squad-core Tegra K1 CPU,has 2GB of RAM and a front facing camera. Aesthetically the tablet looks like Nvidia's Tegra Note with a Gunmetal Gray colour scheme and front facing speakers.
Hopefully we will soon see more of the Shield 2, it's controller and see how much Nvidia has improved their game streaming technologies. One thing I will say is thank you to those American Beta testers with the original Shield. Nvidia better have a European release this time.
We at OC3D will continue to provide you with information on the Shield Tablet and anything Nvidia as it develops.
