Welcome back to what I consider the world’s most versatile tablet. When I reviewed the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet just a few weeks ago in its Wi-Fi edition, it became immediately clear what NVIDIA was aiming for - a tablet that’s made for gamers, but rolls with the punches for anyone else that might want to take a stab at it.

Several 4K TVs have been made available this week by Vizio. Introduced earlier this year in preparation for the market, Vizio brought the P-Series 4K TVs with a number of smart features that set them above the pack. But what’s most important is their pricing structure - starting at $999.99 USD.
Let’s talk about the BlackBerry Passport. Today it’s been revealed by BlackBerry that it’ll cost a cool $599 USD off-contract.
