shield fccFolks over at the FCC have one pretty interesting aspect about their job – they are able to play with all of the latest devices before it even hits the market, just to make sure that nothing is amiss for the masses. However, when you are faced with a sub-par device, then the job can get rather boring or tedious. Having said that, I am quite sure that they would not have had any issues with the NVIDIA Shield gaming tablet with 4G LTE connectivity, as this particular tablet had just passed through the FCC.

Touted to retail for $399 a pop when it finally hits the market, here are some details on this 4G LTE enabled device – this version of the NVIDIA Shield Tablet will be an 8” Android-powered tablet that sports an NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor, not to mention placing a strong emphasis on gaming. Apart from that, it will have double the internal storage space compared to the Wi-Fi only model, sporting 32GB of internal memory apart from the aforementioned 4G LTE connectivity. Hopefully it will not have the cracked edges issue that we talked about earlier this week.

Hardware specifications of the NVIDIA Shield gaming tablet with 4G LTE include an 8” display at 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution, 2GB RAM, NVIDIA’s 2.2GHz ARM Cortex-A15 quad-core processor with 192-core Kepler graphics, dual band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, an HDMI output, and support for 4K HD video playback. A microSD memory card slot is there in case you want to boost its storage, while a microSIM card slot would give you the power of picking your own network provider to take advantage of its 4G LTE capability.
