Want an NVIDIA SHIELD? The folks from NVIDIA are giving one away, along with two fantastic games and a special edition Shield for the grand prize winner. The contest starts today, and runs well into June.
Xiaomi has recently unveiled its first tablet, which also happens to be the first introduced with the NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor. The tablet is the MiPad and it is running Android 4.4 (with the MIUI user interface) and sporting looks similar to the iPad mini. The tablet is fairly low priced, however it doesn't appear as if there will be a widespread global release.
The awaited day has finally arrived and NVIDIA SHIELD owners can now get their hands on Valve's hit titles. The native Android ports of Portal and Half-Life 2 are now available exclusively for the gaming handheld, albeit for a rather high price.
NVIDIA has just put up a new video that reminds us that it has a rather interesting device under its belt. Or rather, it has an interesting stylus that goes along with it: the DirectStylus pen for the Tegra Note 7.
It seems that Valve and NVIDIA's pairing will bear yet another fruit. The iconic first person shooter Half-Life 2 is teased to soon be making its way to Android, and it will be stopping by the SHIELD console first.
The security focused Blackphone was being shown back in February during Mobile World Congress. We managed to get a bit of hand-on time with the device during the show, and even had some details on the specs. At the time we were told the handset would have a quad-core 2.0GHz processor, however the specifics were left unannounced.
Trying to corner yet another segment of the growing mobile market, HP is reported to soon out a new Slatebook 14 Android device. But rather than sport the hybrid tablet/laptop form of the Slatebook x2, the Slatebook 14 is a full-fledged notebook sporting almost the same specs as the older model.
An LTE version of the NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 was announced back in February. And while we managed to get a bit of hands-on time with the tablet during Mobile World Congress -- the availability was somewhat up in the air. NVIDIA had said the tablet was expected to arrive in the second quarter.
The latest update for the NVIDIA SHIELD has been detailed. This update isn't scheduled to arrive until early April, but it is one that should have SHIELD users looking forward to seeing arrive. NVIDIA has said this update will bring the system to Android 4.4.2. While Kit Kat sounds nice, there is so much more involved here including key updates for Gamepad Mapper, TegraZone, and GameStream.
