NVIDIA and Honda announced a partnership this week, one which will have Tegra processors in 2015 models of Honda in Europe starting next year. To clarify, this is not Android Auto, which Google detailed at Google I/O this year, but is instead Honda’s software technology powered by NVIDIA silicon. (more…)
Starting today, folks can head on over to NVIDIA’s website and purchase a SHIELD Tablet (review here)with 4G LTE for $399. Previously, the WiFi-only model was available for purchase with 16GB, but the newest variant features a bit more storage with 32GB, plus the added connectivity.
The device is certified to run on AT&T’s LTE network, but it is unlocked, meaning it will work on more than 70 carriers worldwide. The device features an 8″ 1080p display, Tegra K1 processor, 2GB of RAM, stylus, access to GRID Beta (gaming platform), 5MP front and rear-facing cameras, and runs Android 4.4+. (more…)

The device falls under FCC ID A4R-NX74751, in case you want to go digging through the listing. It features some sort of NVIDIA Tegra chip, global roaming with LTE (bands 2, 4, 5, 7, and 17), and an LG-made battery that only weighs in at 2,480mAh. (more…)
