Nvidia promises a Android 6.0 Marshmallow Shield Update before Christmas

 

Nvidia has promised an Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Shield Tablet and the Shield Tablet K1 before Christmas, making the Shield tablet one of the very few devices that has received more than one update to a numbered version of Android, 4.2, 5.0 and now 6.0. If only other tablet or phone manufacturers could update their products more frequently.

Even now the Shield tablet is one of the most powerful tablets out there, almost unrivaled when it comes to pure gaming potential.

They just started going back on sale after the fire risk recall, wonder if that will effect sales at all. Also adding to the fact the Shield 2 is rumored to release in a couple monthsQuote

Well considering how many devices other manufacturers support, I can see why it wouldnt be a good idea from a financial standpoint. After all they do want people to upgrade to the latest and greatest every once in a while at least.Quote
