The wait is over and the handheld NVIDIA Shield Tablet can be purchased by customers from the US and Canada as previously mentioned by the slate's maker. Next to the tablet, customers can also purchase an optional cover or wireless controller, while the DirectStylus 2 digital pen comes in the retail package of the Shield Tablet.

NVIDIA Shield Tablet has the following highlights: Tegra K1 SoC, 2 GB RAM and up to 32 GB of storage, 8-inch Full HD display, as well as stereo front-facing speakers. This handheld gaming machine focuses on entertainment and allows its users to easily stream games over the Internet. Thanks to the digital pen and the included NVIDIA Dabbler app, it can also be used to create digital works of art using "hyper-realistic watercolor and 3D Paint oil painting."

The Shield Tablet is only available in the US and Canada for now, but it is expected to hit Europe soon as well. The 16 GB WiFi-only edition costs $299 USD, while the 4G LTE version with 32 GB of storage is priced at $399 USD, but not available for purchase yet.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
