NVIDIA Shield Tablet review

NVIDIA Shield Tablet and Wireless Controller

If you're willing to go all-in with some extra accessory purchases, you can have one of the most flexible and capable Android tablets out there today

NVIDIA has won over many consumers' hearts and minds in the desktop computer space with its high-performance graphics cards, and is looking (once again) to parlay that success into the consumer electronic space with the Shield Tablet. Drawing on intense brand recognition within the gamer community, NVIDIA wants to sell a device that's a great overall tablet, but with gaming features unmatched by the competition.

It's fighting an uphill battle outside of the most hardcore of potential gaming buyers, though. General consumers definitely don't think of NVIDIA when it comes to making their next tablet purchase, and even those who know the name may already have brand allegiances with Apple, Samsung, LG or Google when it comes to tablets.

Luckily NVIDIA has more than just brand recognition to work with. Read on as we break down the merits of NVIDIA's Shield device, the Tegra K1-powered Shield Tablet.

This week's sidebar poll: Will you unlock your phone now that it's 'more' legal?

126
Unlock your cell phone

Cell unlocking is now easier than ever, but is anyone going to do it?

A bill has been passed that will once again make cell phone unlocking legal and easy for people who don't want their several-hundred dollar piece of equipment forced to use a particular carrier. As Chris explained late last week, this law is one of those that needs examined and evaluated by lawmakers every few years, as it's technically covered under the Digital Millenium Copyright Act. That sounds a bit silly, but that debate is best left for another time. We're here to ask how many of us are really going to do it?

Motorola Shamu rumored to be the Nexus 6

Nexus

A day without a Nexus rumor is like a day without sunshine

There's been a rash of rumors the past few days about an unannounced 5.9-inch phone from Motorola (see Android Police and The Information for their excellent coverage of all of this), and most of them say that this device will be the Nexus 6. What you've probably heard is that the Motorola Shamu, based on an entry in Google's bug-tracker system, is the next Nexus, and ready to take on the also unannounced iPhone 6, and we will see it shortly after the Apple announcement.

Like most rumors, this is surely based on some sort of proof, but a lot of it just doesn't make sense and we're not yet ready to declare anything as the next Nexus.
