SHIELD Tablet LTE owners in the US who are ready to kick off the holiday weekend have a little something extra to be thankful for this year - their version of NVIDIA's eight-inch tablet is getting Lollipop as of now.

The Wi-Fi version of the tablet started getting the update a little over a week ago, and it was announced at that time that NVIDIA was waiting on carrier approval (probably AT&T) before Android 5.0 could be pushed to the LTE model. Thankfully that process didn't take too long, so those sporting this version of the device aren't left out in the cold (unlike those with the carrier-enabled versions of Google's Nexus 7 *cough*).

For a quick look at what to expect from the update, check out our hands on post here.

Enjoy!
