Wield the SHIELD: SHIELD Tablet Ships, Get Your Gaming On (Video)

The ultimate tablet for gamers ships today, and consumers can’t wait.

Starting at $299, the SHIELD tablet packs a huge number of next-generation technologies into a compact, 8-inch Android tablet powered by our 192 core super chip, Tegra K1.

One reporter called the SHIELD tablet “…the best gaming tablet in the world,” while others remarked, “The SHIELD tablet has the potential to supplant the Google Nexus 7 as the tablet Android aficionados prefer,” and “For gamers it’s the only choice out there if you want a solid gaming tablet. It also helps that the tablet comes at great price for such a powerful device.”

Available in the United States, Canada, and coming soon to Europe, the SHIELD tablet and the SHIELD wireless controller join the SHIELD portable as part of our growing family of gaming devices. Each of these products is built to offer an unmatched Android and PC gaming experience.

It’s all part of our plan to transform Android into a vibrant gaming platform that can excite gamers and provide the foundation for a thriving industry.
