NVIDIA relaunches its Tegra K1-powered Shield Tablet for $199 |

The NVIDIA Shield Tablet is powered by the company's Tegra K1 processor, with the slate featuring an 8-inch 1920x1200 display, 16GB of flash storage, 2GB of RAM and a microSD card slot. NVIDIA has removed the stylus and its holder, with the speaker grilles being made from soft-touch polycarbonate versus the hard plastic on the original model.

The Shield Tablet ships with Android 5.1 onboard, with NVIDIA promising an Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in the near future. The accessories for the Shield Tablet will be sold separately, so if you want to grab the controller you'll have to shell out $60.
