There's a 16GB wi-fi model and a 32GB LTE model

NVIDIA's new tablet version of its handheld controller-and-screen device, Shield, now has a full spec sheet available before release thanks to a new report from
The upcoming NVIDIA Shield Tablet will reportedly sport an 8-inch 1920x1200 IPS LCD display, Tegra K1 (quad-core A15, 32-bit) processor clocked at 2.2GHz, 2GB of RAM, a 5MP front-facing camera and a 5 MP rear-facing camera. The 19.75 watt-hour battery has an estimated 10 hours of video playback.
Some extras are front-facing stereo speakers with dual bass reflex ports, a MicroSD slot, a mini HDMI 1.4a port, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, GPS and a NVIDIA DirectStylus 2 (included). 
There will be two models to choose from, including a 16GB Wi-Fi version and a 32GB LTE version. The Wi-Fi model will sell for $299 USD while the LTE version will run $399 USD.  

Separate from the Shield Tablet itself is the Shield Controller, which offers response times of about 10ms. It also has a built-in headphone jack with voice chat support. 
The Shield Controller doesn't come with the tablet, but you can buy it separately for a pricey $60 USD. NVIDIA is likely betting on the higher-quality features of the controller to be worth the cost. 

For the cautious gadget owner, there will also be a Shield tablet cover that folds into a stand as well. It's expected to be priced at $40 USD. 
Those itching to pick one up can do so July 29 in the U.S. and Canada, with Europe following on August 14 and other regions in Fall 2014. 
NVIDIA introduced Project Shield in January 2013 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) as a way of dipping into the handheld gaming sector.
