When it comes to tablets designed for gaming purposes, there’s just one name that comes in our mind, and that one is NVIDIA. Today, Nvidia announced a successor for the Shield tablet, device called Shield K1. In terms of specs, we’re getting pretty much the same as the previous model.


There’s a 8-inch Full HD display (1920 x 1080 pixels), a quad-core Nvidia Tegra K1 processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB space of internal storage + microSD card slot. The tablet offers two 5-megapixel cameras, front-facing stereo speakers and Android Lollipop as default operating system. Marshmallow is expected to pop-up pretty soon on this device apparently.


Unlike the previous tablet, this one doesn’t pack a stylus, charger, not even a microUSB cable, all these accessories being sold separately for a $20 – $40 price tag (controller – $59.99, case – $39.99, stylus – $19.99, charger – $29.99). You must know that Nvidia Shield K1 is priced at $199.99.
