Nvidia Shield Tablet version 5.2 software update installs fixes bugs and April security patch
The Nvidia Shield Tablet is a power house for performance and piece of hardware that was launched way back in 2014 with Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system. NVIDIA recently focuses on the SHIELD Android TV these days, also given priority to SHIELD Tablet. After receiving the device updated to Nougat in February, NVIDIA has sent out two small updates. That includes latest version 5.2 software update. The changelog shows nothing major, but it's nice of NVIDIA to keep this tablet up-to-date.
The issue with GPS crashing has now been patched. The update also bundles in various bug fixes and performance improvements over the previous update, version 5.1. The latest update also lets you use more third-party chargers.
The tablet actually holds strong when it comes to specifications when compared to devices of today. It is powered by the Nvidia’s own Tegra K1 chipset with 2GB RAM and an 8-inch 1920 x 1200 pixel display.
It’s hard to see this level of commitment go into one device, but then again Nvidia has a limited portfolio of devices, so we can’t really blame other OEMs here (though, we should). The company doesn’t produce tablets anymore but has put more focus into gaming related products, as this is their area of expertise.
