If you want spectacular gaming from a trusted and frankly, almost perfect brand, then we've got something for you! NVIDIA unveiled it's very own gaming tablet called the Shield. While this concept has been in production and review for over a year, it got a little bit of a facelift. Instead of a 5-inch screen, it is now 8 inches and with 1080p resolution. You can play the tablet alone, but the developers have now given you an incentive not to, developing a controller for the Shield. You can keep on playing your normal games, crushing candy and making birds flap bewteen green tubes, or you could step up to the 'gamer' level with the Shield. The processor in it makes me drool a bit it's so nice for a tablet. You can run games via GameStream (takes PC games and streams them to the tablet) as well as the ability to stream to Twitch on it. For you technical people out there, the specs are:
  • 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
