Nvidia puts its updated 4G LTE-enabled Shield gaming tablet up for pre-order

On Tuesday, Nvidia opened the pre-orders for the updated version of its Shield gaming tablet --- the company's 4G LTE-enabled shield version dubbed 'The Ultimate Gaming Tablet.'

The updated 4G LTE-enabled Shield gaming tablet is now available for pre-order on the Nvidia website as well as AT&T. Both the companies have indicated that the shipments of the tablet will commence from September 30.

The cost of the updated 4G LTE-enabled version of the Shield gaming tablet is $400, which is $100 more than the standard Shield model. However, the latest version comes with an additional 16GB of internal storage, taking the tablet's internal memory to 32GB.

As such, in terms of value, customers will essentially be paying an additional $100 for the updated Shield tablet for an extra 16GB of memory and 4G LTE connectivity --- not a bad deal at all, especially given the fact that the Shield boasts Nvidia's powerful Tegra K1 processor; 2GB of RAM; Google's Android operating system; and compatibility with Nvidia's wireless controller.

Meanwhile, along with putting the updated Shield tablet up for pre-order, Nvidia has also announced three new games that have been specially designed to be played on the Shield --- Beach Buggy Racing, BombSquad, and Broadsword: Age of Chivalry.
