There is evidence that NVIDIA's Shield tablet is coming soon. The Global Certification Forum, which is a group that tests devices for mobile network interoperability, recently listed an entry for a NVIDIA made Shield Tablet with 3G and LTE. On top of the certification they also shared a Tweet in which they referred to it as a “notebook/tablet.” This suggests it might be a hybrid device, like the Asus Transformer series.

Previous leaks regarding this device shared a few details including a Tegra K1 chip, a 2048 x 1536 screen, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 7MP rear camera. The GCF certification was given out on June 26. It will interesting to see this new product from NVIDIA as they continue to push harder to create a hardcore gaming market for Android.

I own a Tegra Note 7, and have had it since shortly after release. The only thing to complain about, for me, is the screen is too small. I use my table a lot, every day, and I use the stylus almost everyday too. It's my go to devise, so I'm very interested in a larger tablet--IF it has a stylus, and at least a 10" screen. I'm not interested in any 8 or 9 inch devise. I can tell you that my Tegra Note 7 is fast, very fast. The K1 should be amazing. I have thought about the Galaxy Note 12, but that's a lot of money. Still, I use my tablet all the time for everything (except phone calls), so it wouldn't be wasted. I'll wait a while longer to see what Nvidia brings to the table.
