Nvidia’s Shield TV devices have long been held up as the best Android TV streaming gadgets around, and it’s not hard to see why. They pack a good level of power and loads of handy software features, while Nvidia has delivered a years-long update commitment that handily beats any Android phone on the market.
This wasn’t Nvidia’s first Shield product, though. Long-time Android enthusiasts will remember that the Nvidia Shield Portable was the company’s first Shield device, but it was the follow-up Shield Tablet that captured many eyes. Sporting a Tegra K1 processor, 1,920 x 1,200 display, stylus, and a quad-speaker setup, Nvidia’s first and only tablet was about as good as it got back in 2014.
