NVIDIA Has Halted The Android 6.0 Update For The SHIELD Tablet Because It Might Break Your WiFi

NVIDIA started rolling the Android 6.0 update out to its original SHIELD Tablet yesterday after getting the K1 variant on Marshmallow a few weeks ago. Things haven't been going awesomely for early upgraders, though. NVIDIA has pulled the SHIELD update while it investigates an issue that can break WiFi connectivity on the tablet.

NVIDIA Gives The Original SHIELD Tablet Some Marshmallow Love With Update 4.0 [Update x2]

NVIDIA rolled out the Marshmallow update to the SHIELD K1 tablet late last year, but what of the shockingly similar original SHIELD Tablet? It was left to suffer on Lollipop. At the time, NVIDIA said we'd see an update in early 2016. Maybe this isn't as early as owners hoped, but the Marshmallow update is now rolling out.

[Update: Game Is Live] NVIDIA'S SHIELD Android TV Will (Finally!) Get Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance On January 7th, Marshmallow Update Sometime Later

The SHIELD TV, easily the best Android TV device available (in an admittedly very short field), will be upgraded to Android Marshmallow at some point. That was never really in question; NVIDIA has been quite good about upgrading software for its first-party Android devices, usually in a timely manner. That's not the important bit of NVIDIA's recent blog post. Nope, the important part is that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, a PS3 port promised since the SHIELD TV was revealed way back in March of last year, will finally be available on Thursday.

NVIDIA Tries To Sue Samsung For Patent Infringement, Ends Up Getting Clobbered By Samsung's Patent Sledgehammer

Patent lawsuits are without a doubt one of the more boring topics in technology. It takes a lot of drama to make it interesting, but the case between Samsung (and Qualcomm) and NVIDIA has hit that bar. See, NVIDIA sued Samsung/Qualcomm in late 2014 for infringing three of its patents, but Samsung sued back with three of its own. Now, NVIDIA has lost its case, and Samsung won on all three counts. Burn.

NVIDIA Shows Off Marshmallow On The SHIELD Tablet K1, Says The Update Is Still Scheduled For December

When NVIDIA reinvented its SHIELD Tablet into the SHIELD Tablet K1 about a month ago and released it on the market, it promised that although the tablet was shipping with Lollipop, an update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow was coming before the end of the year. A month has passed and it seems that NVIDIA will make good on its promise as the update looks to be in its final testing stages.

The company posted a video sneak peak of Marshmallow on the Tablet K1, showing off the new app permissions, Now on tap, the launcher's vertical drawer and search bar, its own cloud gaming service GeForce Now, and focusing on the fact that Marshmallow will let you adopt MicroSD cards as internal storage for your tablet.

NVIDIA Re-releases SHIELD Tablet As SHIELD Tablet K1, Drops The Price To $199 [Quick Hands-On]

In my personal opinion, NVIDIA's SHIELD Tablet has been one of the better Android tablets on the market for the last year and a half (give or take). Sure, it's had its ups and downs — a mandatory recall due to battery issues back in August probably hurt it more than anything, but NVIDIA did what was right and replaced all affected units.

Around that same time, SHIELD Tablet as we knew it was EOL'd. Initially we kind of assumed that this was because NVIDIA was prepping to release SHIELD Tablet 2, but we haven't seen nor heard anything about that. Now the company is bringing back the original SHIELD Tablet, albeit with a few changes and a nice new price tag.
