So yes, NVIDIA is promising that the latest Android version "and more" will be coming to the multi-talented SHIELD Tablet. As for its other mobile devices, however, we can only speculate.

Android L 64-bit emulator finally out, only for Intel x86

HTC may win the race for first 64-bit Android smartphone

This specific race is heating up – as we have covered before that SoC manufacturers are working hard to put out their own 64-bit processors – but it looks like HTC may steal a march on their competitors by tying this deal up with Qualcomm to put out what is probably the world’s first fully 64-bit Android smartphone.
