Nvidia SHIELD Tablet will be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop
Nvidia today confirmed that its powerful SHIELD Tablet would be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop (which was announced by Google yesterday). While Nvidia can’t say exactly when its tablet will get the update, we assume it’s going to happen in the next few months. Nvidia mentions that, besides Lollipop, “more” is coming to the SHIELD Tablet - though for now it’s not clear what that “more” means.

Like Google’s brand new Nexus 9, the Nvidia SHIELD Tablet is powered by a Tegra K1 processor, being the world’s first tablet to use this chipset. Nvidia presents it as a device that has the “muscle to handle the technologies that make PC gaming great.” That aside, the slate features an 8-inch display with 1200 x 1920 pixels, Nvidia’s own DirectStylus, stereo speakers, 2 GB of RAM, and microSD card support. The tablet also has two 5 MP cameras - one on the front, and another one on the rear side.

The 16 GB, Wi-Fi-only version of the SHIELD Tablet is available since June (costing $299), while the LTE variant, which offers more internal memory, was launched in September for $399. Both models currently run Android 4.4 KitKat.
