The graphics giant is also anticipated to release a high-end tablet under its own brand, similar to what it did with the Shield console. This tablet will reportedly feature the Tegra 5 "Logan" SoC and is anticipated to hit the market in Q1 2014.
We have to commend Nvidia’s sales machine for the decision to include at least the wealthier parts of the European Union into its launch scheme. Nvidia deliberately chose USA and Canada for the Shield launch as this market is much less segmented than chubby old Europe.
Once Nvidia learns how to do the retail and etail distribution and gets back on track with retail / etail product marketing, it will expand its hardware operations to Europe.
