If we were to cherry-pick one major fault from our NVIDIA Shield tablet review, it would definitely be the slate's storage space -- 16GB just isn't enough for a device built for gaming and media consumption. If you were holding off until the company put out a larger capacity version, your day has come: NVIDIA just announced that the 32GB LTE variant of the Shield is now available for pre-order. $399 buys the unlocked LTE tablet in its own right, but NVIDIA tells us that AT&T will be offering it for $299 on contract.

We dropped by NVIDIA's Santa Clara offices for a quick demo earlier this week and found exactly what we expected: last month's gaming tablet with lighting fast wireless connectivity. Naturally, like most LTE devices under ideal conditions, it performed admirably -- successfully streaming games from NVIDIA's GRID and a remote PC over the cellular network. The company is also announcing the availability of three new Tegra K1 optimized games: Beach Buggy Racing, BombSquad and Broadsword: Age of Chivalry. Sounds good, but you'll have to wait until next month to play if you're ordering today -- new tablets don't start shipping out until the September 30th.
