Good news! Yet another manufacturer has spoke up and has promised an upgrade to Android 5.0 Lollipop for their device. The latest to join the party is NVIDIA and their Shield Tablet. Just in case you forgot what the Shield brings to the table, here are the specs:
8″ 1920×1200 IPS Display
2.2 GHz Quad-Core Tegra K1 Processor
16GB Interal Storage / 32GB Internalge Storage
microSD Card Slot
5MP Front Facing Camera
19.75 Watt Hour Battery
Front Facing Speakers
LTE Connectivity on 32GB Model
Interestingly, NVIDIA tweeted that “Android 5.0 Lollipop and more” will hit the Shield Tablet. What is the more? Unfortunately they didn’t really give any indications. but my best guess is that it’s some new proprietary apps or software but, again, that’s just personal speculation.
NVIDIA hasn’t given any time frame on the update nor have they mentioned the original Shield Portable. Given that they leave Android pretty stock, the update should hopefully be on the quicker side. We’ll be sure to pass on more info as we hear more.
