Yep, you heard us right. It’s a meme waiting to happen, but we’ll set that aside for a moment. What’s important is that you can now get the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet, the NVIDIA wireless game controller, and a bundle of games all for USD$399.
Of course, we can say right off the bat that as with all leaks, it will be difficult to verify if this is indeed true – that is the nature of all leaks. But the purported specs of the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra has just leaked and it’s showing us an insanely robust tablet, something that would blow away current competition. But is it in the “too good to be true” category?
Yeah, you can balk at the size all you want – you know we all did. There’s just something about a smartphone when it breaks the 6-inch barrier that makes it go from useful to weird – not quite a tablet, too big for a phone. But Florida-based outfit Blu wants to take that risk in putting out the Blu Studio 7.0, a huge 7-inch smartphone for the budget conscious.
Huawei just introduced a new Android tablet. The Honor T1 is yet another affordable slate from the Chinese manufacturer. This is another addition to Huawei's Honor series which the company has been trying to market all over the world. The new Android tablet is affordable at only $160 (€130). That's good enough for a functional tablet that can offer simple web browsing, media playback, social media access, chat, mobile games, and more.

The name Nanoport magnetic connector alone gives us an idea that this is one cool concept. Anything with the word “nano” and “magnetic” could be something great and this new project from Nano Magnetics is no different.
Google pushed, rather silently if not for a few keen observers, a minor update to Android Lollipop yesterday. While details on the nature of this update is still unknown, factory images for Android 5.0.1 are already available for Nexus tablets and for those who feel a bit more adventurous. But for those who are caught in between waiting for the OTA update, there is an option available to them now that the update files are available to the public.
And still on the race of manufacturers trying to get Android 5.0 to their devices, the good people at the XDA developers forum have given word that the LG G Pad 8.3 already has a Lollipop update rolling out at this moment. That’s good news for all the users of the said tablet, as there was very little news about the tablet being upgraded to Android Lollipop.
NVIDIA is giving its SHIELD Tablet users a holiday gift. The promised Android 5.0 update, and all the other goodies that it will bring, is now available for the taking for the LTE models of the device, claimed to be the first LTE tablet in the US to get the update. Simply head to your device's Settings app to get to the System Update option. Don't be surprised if it isn't available yet immediately, as it does take some time for updates to completely roll out to everyone.
