NVIDIA releases 5.1 Lollipop update for 2-year old Tegra Note 7

Before there was the powerful NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet, there was the NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 – launched in 2013, and still going strong for its users these days. If any of you still own one, you probably can testify to the robustness of the specs that keep this tablet working to this day. And there’s some good news for you, too.

According to well-placed sources, Google is planning a new set of update guarantees as the new “Android M” version of its mobile platform rolls out.

Dell Venue 8 tablets get Lollipop, forced disk encryption

One of the features of Android Lollipop that Google has been touting is the full disk encryption. For us it’s a hit or miss – you only get protection in certain specific situations, and your device gets a performance hit because of it. Hey, if you want the added security, then it’s good. But we’d like for Android to give us that choice, something Dell Venue 8 tablet owners did not get when their tablets updated recently to Android 5.0.2.
