Tegra Tab leaked, is NVIDIA working on a self-branded tablet?

NVIDIA Tegra TabRenders of a tablet carrying Tegra Tab moniker have been posted by a Chinese website recently. Looks like, in the absence of any major tablets with Tegra 4 processor, NVIDIA has decided to use its hardware skills in tablet making.

These renders, which were first posted on MyDrivers, show a 7-inch tablet with design cues taken from NVIDIA’s recently launched gaming console Shield.  From what we can see, there is a camera sensor on the back (reportedly 5MP), headphone jack, microUSB and microHDMI ports. In addition, a stylus slot also seems to be visible.

The Verge notes that NVIDIA had registered Tegra Tab trademark at U.S. Patents and Trademarks Office (USPTO) back in April 2013, so the appearance of these images does not seem all that surprising.

Not many details are available at this point but given the launch of a gaming console from NVIDIA, a self-branded Android tablet is not something really far-fetched.
