NVIDIA reportedly readying Tegra K1-powered Shield tablet

In addition to releasing a new version of the Shield gaming console, NVIDIA may also soon offer up a tablet counterpart, too. Details making the rounds indicate said tablet could be powered by a Tegra K1 processor and feature a 7.9-inch 2048 x 1536 resolution display. Other specs figure to include Android 4.4 KitKat and 2GB RAM; we would expect nothing but high-end stuff for NVIDIA’s first crack at a homegrown tablet.

If NVIDIA does keep the Shield branding with the tablet then we might look for them to position it around gaming and entertainment.┬áSpecifically, it could be sold as a flat panel gaming console that limelights as a tablet. According to details obtained by the Global Certification Forum (GCF) website, it’s also possible the device is a hybrid tablet/notebook or convertible product.
