NVIDIA's LTE-enabled SHIELD Tablet is receiving Android 5.0 Lollipop as we speak

Earlier this month, we informed you that NVIDIA's SHIELD Tablet will get a taste from Android 5.0 Lollipop by the end of November. Well, it's seems that NVIDIA has kept its promise – the Wi-Fi-only version of the tablet has already been updated with Lollipop. Fortunately, its LTE-enabled sibling won't stay far behind in terms of software, as it is now receiving the freshest variation of the confectionery mobile platform, too.

Apart from getting all the bells and whistles that Lollipop is known for, i.e. the ART runtime, Material Design, the battery-friendly Project Volta, etc. Apart from treating its LTE gaming slate to Android 5.0, NVIDIA has also added a little something something from itself – the new NVIDIA Dabbler app, for example, is a powerful graphics-editing app, which comes with layer support, custom stensils, and various effects.

The update is rolling out over-the-air - just reach and grab it from your gaming tablet's Settings menu. If you don't own a SHIELD Tablet, on the other hand, you can get one as a part of NVIDIA's Black Friday bundle deal.
