A few months back, I wrote about how Nvidia’s SHIELD tablet gave us a look into Nvidia’s mobile gaming strategy.  I also talked a bit about its feature set of the initial SHIELD tablet with WiFi and 16GB of RAM. Nvidia today launched an LTE-based SHIELD tablet with 32GB of RAM, priced at $399, $299 with an AT&T contract, and I wanted to share some thoughts on it as I used it for a week.  Let me provide some background first.
The tablet market is huge but maturing as evidenced by declining growth rates, but more interestingly, differentiation through a focus on use cases. HP, Dell, and Lenovo have tablet lines best known for horizontal and vertical enterprise use cases. There are kid’s tablets like Kurio and Eddy.  There are tablets used by restaurants like Chili’s, by police forces and the military using Dell ruggeds, etc.  Nvidia’s SHIELD is unique in that it’s all about gaming, but also worked well for me as an everyday tablet.

Martoma’s decision should not distract us from one deplorable feature of federal criminal sentencing: the trial penalty.
