What's amazing here is NVIDIA managed to cut the price of this amazing gaming tablet to just USD 199 compared to the older Shield tablet that's priced at 299. Of course that price tag will have some compromises, the package itself won't include a charger or an adapter. Fortunately, that's just a minor thing as most of us have that one in our homes.
The NVIDIA Shield Tablet K1 also comes with several accessories like the DirectStylus 2, world charger, controller and magnetic keyboard cover that you can buy separately.
What we don't know right now if this one will be available in the country. Though I'm hoping that a partnership with a local brand would happen to bring it here in the Philippines.
What do you think guys?
