Just a couple weeks after it’s initial announcement and only a day after the code was released, NVIDIA has already announced that their SHIELD Tablet would be updated during this month. That’s beating other OEMs by quite a bit. Motorola, usually the king of the hill when it comes to non-Nexus updates is planning to have their devices updated in the same time frame. LG has promised an update for the LG G3 by the end of the year. Meanwhile HTC and other are promising updates within 90 days.
The reason this update is coming so soon is likely because the SHIELD runs a pretty bare bones version of Android. This adds a pretty solid advantage to owning a SHIELD tablet over many other Android tablets. We’re sure that NVIDIA can hold up to this promise and all you SHIELD owners should expect OTAs soon.
