First ROMs for the NVIDIA Shield Tablet surface

We’re all big fans of the NVIDIA Shield Tablet – that gaming-centered Android tablet which at one point we were unsure if it would fulfill its potential or even wow its potential market. We were blown away on both counts. We love the quality and gamers and techno-geeks alike have been impressed with it – so much that in a little over a month, it’s been rooted, received a major OTA update, and now custom ROMs have come out for the device.

Android gaming may get a truly mobile experience with the JXD S5800

Mobile gaming is certainly fun, but can be limiting. The lack of hardware controls is sometimes frustrating, as games like Grand Theft Auto are much better with dedicated controls. Devices like a PS Vita are fun, but require yet another device to tote around. Plus, we don’t get all the open source fun of Android. Consoles like Ouya or Gamestick are fun, but tie us to the living room. NVIDIA's Shield is great, but a touch bulky, and best used as a secondary device.
