Reviews for the NVIDIA Shield Tablet LTE P1761

87% Nvidia Shield Tablet LTE Review Update | Notebookcheck
Mobile gaming fun. Thanks to the LTE Cat 4 module, the top model can be used for gaming on-the-go anywhere. In addition, Nvidia doubled the flash memory, which worked significantly faster in our test model.
80% Nvidia Shield Tablet (32GB, LTE)
Source: PC Mag English version
With Qualcomm dominating the smartphone chipset market in the U.S., Nvidia is doubling down on its core competency: gaming. Even so, with a $399 price tag and LTE connectivity, the Shield Tablet has exceptional appeal for gamers and non-gamers alike. It blows other tablets out of the water when it comes to gaming and has an outstanding price-to-feature ratio for an LTE-enabled tablet. There are two comparable models available with LTE connectivity: the iPad mini with Retina and Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4, both of which cost $529.99 with AT&T LTE and only come with 16GB of internal storage.

The NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet with Wi-Fi and 16GB of internal storage will run you $299 MSRP, while the 32GB LTE version will cost $399. We’d recommend picking up a SHIELD Cover along with whatever model you get - that’ll cost you $39 for a magnetic flap that attaches to the side of the tablet extremely well, protecting your precious glass display in the process.

100% Nvidia Shield Tablet LTE
Source: Recombu English version
Nvidia’s Shield Tablet LTE offers strong value for £299, even before the gaming side is considered. For that cash you get a light and portable tablet with a Full HD display, decent stereo speakers, 4G support, an accurate stylus and enough power to keep your apps and games ticking over for a good, long while. If you're not big into gaming, something like the Nexus 7 tablet might be better suited for you, with its similar Full HD display and clean Android interface, but gamers shouldn't look anywhere else - the Nvidia Shield Tablet is the king of portable gaming devices.

The Nvidia Shield Tablet LTE P1761 is a next gen portable gaming device crammed into the all familiar tablet form. At first glance, the Shield looks like any other tablet with its full black chassis, block-form with very subtle curves. The Nvidia Shield Tablet LTE P1761 is equipped with an Nvidia Tegra K1 192 Core Kepler GPU, a 2.2 GHz ARM Cortex A15 CPU and 2 GB RAM.

The setup is powerful enough for portable gaming and even Nvidia GameStream, which allows PC games to be streamed onto the tablet. The user will be interacting with an 8 inch 1920 x 1200 Full HD display with multi-touch capability. The LTE version only comes with the option of 32 GB storage. Users will be happy about microSD support for increasing memory. Other features are mini-HDMI out, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with GLONASS, dual-band WiFi, and a DirectStylus 2 with 3D Paint application.

Any software updates will directly come from Nvidia as the Shield uses customized software. The most notable feature is the ability for the Nvidia Shield Tablet LTE P1761 to use a Shield wireless controller making it console-like. The battery output is rated at 10.75 Wh.
