    NVIDIA Follows Up Shield Handheld with New Shield Tablet

    NVIDIA has taken its hardware lineup to the next logical level with its announcement of the new Shield Tablet. With 8″ of diagonal screen space and the powerful new Tegra K1 processor, the Shield tablet addresses the only real issue I had with the original Shield handheld.

The two companies have intermittently entered these discussions — some voluntarily, others court ordered — for years now, but with the companies’ second big court battle over and success on both sides waning, it’s looking increasingly likely that Apple could finally be interested in cutting a deal.
