More storage. More connectivity. More fun. The new 32GB SHIELD tablet with 4G LTE gives you even more ways to game.

And it can be yours for only $100 more than the basic version of SHIELD tablet, or the equivalent of the same price when you sign up for a qualifying LTE data plan.

In July, we introduced the SHIELD tablet, the ultimate tablet for gamers, with 16GB of storage and Wi-Fi. The result was a tremendous response from gamers, consumers and the media alike. Now we’re offering twice the storage, so you’ll be able to enjoy more games, more movies, music and photos, and more of your favorite apps.

SHIELD tablet brings out the best in gaming. It supports high-end Android titles like Half-Life 2 and Portal. Jump into console-style multiplayer gaming with our optional SHIELD wireless controller. Or stream games from your GeForce GTX-powered PC. Add Twitch broadcasting and you have a gaming experience like no other.

Now you can buy the SHIELD tablet with 4G LTE capabilities for streaming movies, music, Twitch and playing your favorite multiplayer games, like War Thunder, on the go. It’s a fully unlocked device and has the capability to support 70+ carriers worldwide.

It’s certified on ATT’s 4G LTE network, so it’s ready for you to activate and take virtually anywhere. Additionally, AT&T customers can receive a $100 bill credit when they activate their SHIELD tablet on qualifying plans at an AT&T store or by calling 866-662-4548.(1) Customers can add the tablet to an existing Mobile Share® Value SM plan for just $10 per month.

It’s a great local multiplayer game that gamers can connect to their televisions, hook up a couple of controllers and play with friends in a split-screen mode. There’s an action-packed, surprise-filled world of off-road kart racing mayhem and a collection of crazy power-ups, like Dodgeball Frenzy, Fireball and Oil Slick, for gamers to explore.
