Back in May, details dropped of an NVIDIA tablet that was being worked on behind closed doors under the codename “Mocha.” Well, a few days ago, an NVIDIA tablet made its way through the Global Certification Forum, but under the SHIELD brand name.
There was a sparse amount of information listed for this device other than the company name. GSM bands listed point to it being functional on AT&T and T-Mobile, but no CDMA. There were LTE bands listed in this certification, but without more details, we can’t be sure if those are meant to be used in the US or elsewhere.
For those who need a refresher on the Mocha’s specs, it is powered by a Tegra K1 quad-core processor, features a 7.9″ display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536, 2GB of RAM, 7MP rear-facing camera, 4.8MP front-facing camera, 16GB of on-board storage, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi connectivity, and runs Android 4.4.2.
Good news for us is, these wireless certifications mean the tablet is more likely to see the light of day instead of being another reference device like last year’s Phoenix phone. Adding the SHIELD brand to the tablet makes things more exciting as well.
We will keep you updated as we hear more.
