NVIDIA’s LTE-enabled 32GB SHIELD Tablet is finally available to purchase, though it won’t come cheap. The 8-inch device is available for $299 on-contract or $399 for an unlocked version that works on over 70 different carrier networks around the world including AT&T here in the U.S. The Wi-Fi only version sells for $299.

The SHIELD Tablet is easily one of our favorite Android slates of the year, and if you consider yourself a gamer chances are you’ll love it too. The device includes access to classic mobile games as well as NVIDIA’s own subscription service called GRID, which features to a ton of PC games to choose from. The company also sells a $60 controller for serious gaming, though you don’t absolutely need one to enjoy the tablet.

Under the hood this device is a beast, offering high-end hardware including NVIDIA’s own super-fast Tegra K1 processor. It also packs an 8-inch 1920 x 1200-pixel display, front-facing stereo speakers, 32GB of storage, dual 5-megapixel front and rear cameras, and runs Android 4.4 KitKat with some of NVIDIA’s own software on top.
