NVIDIA's first shot at Android tablet market was no less than a disaster. Neither the Tegra Note tablet nor the Shield handheld gaming console went on to become great devices, in respect, of popularity. But NVIDIA is unfazed by below average or negative feedback for its hardware devices. Graphics giant NVIDIA might release the Shield tablet on July 22, according to the report.
Just a day back, the alleged tablet device was apparently leaked in a new press shot image. And now, documents shared by VideoCardz claim to reveal complete details about NVIDIA's Shield tablet, including a possible release date. Moreover, NVIDIA is also prepping to launch a new physical controller as well.
The leaked documents show that the Shield tablet and its wireless controller will go on sale in the US and Canada, on July 22, with more regions to follow shortly. The new 7.9-inch tablet will go on sale at a price of $299 (about Rs. 17,940) for the 16GB Wi-Fi variant, $399 ( about Rs. 23,940) for the 32GB LTE model, $39 ( about Rs. 2,340) for a Shield Tablet cover and $59 ( about Rs. 3,600) for a Shield Controller.
