The 4G LTE-capable version of NVIDIA's slate for gamers has just been listed on the FCC website and should hit the market soon for $399 USD as expected.
Codrut Nistor,

NVIDIA Shield Tablet is considered by many to be the best Android-powered gaming device currently on the market but the 16 GB variant available features only WiFi connectivity. Back at launch in late July, a 4G LTE variant was also revealed and it has been listed on the official product page ever since. Instead of the "Buy Now" button that allows to buy the 16 GB WiFi variant, the button that should lead to the purchase page of the 32 GB LTE variant only says "Notify Me."

Since NVIDIA did not reveal an accurate launch date for the 4G LTE-capable Shield Tablet, seeing the device listed on the FCC website is a clear sign that its launch is approaching. As previously revealed, the upcoming 4G LTE variant of the NVIDIA Shield Tablet will feature about the same specs as the WiFi one:

  • Processor: NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 32 GB internal storage and microSD support
  • Display: 8-inch touchscreen with 1,920X1,200 pixels
  • Cameras: 5 MP front and rear
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11n dual-band, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI out and 4K output support, GPS
  • Operating system: Android 4.4 KitKat

This slate also features front-facing stereo speakers and comes loaded with a complete set of useful apps, including Google Play and NVIDIA's own TegraZone, as well as TwitchTV, Hulu Plus, Sonic 4 Episode II THD and Expendable: Rearmed. We will get back to the 4G LTE Shield Tablet as soon as NVIDIA finally decides to unleash it.

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.
