Confirming recent rumour reports, Nvidia has announced the SHIELD Tablet, a followup to its Shield Portable gaming device that separates the screen and controller into distinct components that can be purchased individually.

Pitched as the first tablet designed for gaming, the Android OS powered Shield Tablet's most noteworthy features are the ability to in-home stream Windows desktop games from a GeForce-powered PC and live Twitch TV broadcasting directly from the portable device.

Impressively, Frozenbyte's acclaimed puzzle platformer Trine 2 comes pre-installed on the Shield tablet, and Valve Software's Half-life 2 and Portal 2 have also been ported to Android to be played exclusively on the new device. The announcement notes that other android games such as Pure Chess, Rochard, Anomaly 2, Flyhunter: Origins, Dungeon Defenders Eternity and Chuck’s Challenge 3D: Reloaded have all been optimised for play on the Shield's Tegra K1 processor also.

Other games featured in the Shield Tablet promotional media such as Titanfall and Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag are only available on the portable setup by way of streaming them from a compatible desktop PC, but are said to have also been further optimised for that purpose.

Nvidia Shield Tablet is due on North American shelves on July 29 for US$299 wifi-only model or $399 for one with LTE celular connectivity and an additional $59 for the wireless controller. A wider international release is expected later in the year.
