We knew the date for a while but as of right now we can confirm that Nvidia’s new Shield Tablet 8, made by HTC, is launching on Tuesday July 22nd. The confirmation comes from multiple sources familiar with the matter.
As mentioned in previous reports, Nvidia's new Shield tablet should be based around a 7.9-inch 2048x1536 screen, a 2.1GHz clocked Tegra K1 SoC with 2GB of RAM and 5GHz WiFi support, something that Nvidia needs for its Gamestream technology.
The rendered pictures covered earlier are also legitimate.
We don’t know the price but we heard that it should sell between $299 and $399 and Tuesday will be the time for pre-orders. The tablet will ship at a later date.
