Open Source Materials and Factory Images for SHIELD

shieldcoding

After watching Jordan’s review of the Nvidia SHIELD, you may be interested in picking one up for yourself. And there’s no fault in this, as the shield packs some serious hardware and battery power, as well as some nice proprietary features such as PC game mirroring and that all-important game controller, in a sleek and portable device. However, this being XDA, many of us are waiting to see just how open the device is towards aftermarket development before getting started.

In this mobile age, nothing is a guarantee anymore; even Nexus devices aren’t quite as open as we’d like. However, Nvidia is trying to cater to the aftermarket development community with the release of their open . . . READ ON »

Device Review: Nvidia SHIELD

NV_Shield_Angled_Left_RealBoxing_LR

NV_Shield_Angled_Left_RealBoxing_LRBack in January, I was lucky enough to be asked to represent XDA at CES. In my experience, one of the most exciting things unveiled at this year’s CES was the Nvidia’s “Project SHIELD.” Here we are, just over six months later, and SHIELD is no longer a “Project,” but a full-fledged, consumer-ready device.

In the middle of June, I ended up with a SHIELD in my hands, direct from the people at Nvidia. We were given a demonstration, allowed to try it out, and then sent away with one, and sworn to secrecy (in a manner of speaking).. . . READ ON »

Nvidia SHIELD Unboxing – XDA Developer TV

JordanSHIELD

Back at CES, Nvidia announced a unique Android Device. It wasn’t a tablet. It wasn’t a phone. It wasn’t a phablet. It was SHIELD. As XDA Developer TV Producer Jordan talked about earlier, SHIELD is a gaming device poised to really make use of Nvidia’s next flagship SoC, the Tegra 4.

Designed to resemble a standard gaming controller, SHIELD is intended to shake up the drab Android gaming ecosystem, and Nvidia is doing what they can to deliver a great product. In addition, the device allows you to stream PC games as long as you have the appropriate video card. Jordan has gotten his hands on a SHIELD unit, and he’s here to give you an unboxing as well as his first impressions. Pull up a c. . . READ ON »

Forums Added for the US HTC One Variants, HTC First, and Nvidia Project Shield

XDA_Articles

During the past week, we’ve created several new forums for exciting new mobile devices. Not too long ago, we took a look at the HTC One at its launch event in New York City. We then promptly put it through its paces with a round of benchmarks. After we found it to be a solid performer, we then decided to give it a home in our forum. Now, its US variants can also share in the joy with forums of their own.

Despite opening ourselves up to various cheesy puns based on the device’s name, we also decided to create forums for the HTC First. HTC’s Facebook-friendly device is interesting not only because it is the First device to feature Facebook Home, but also because it ships with a relatively untainted versi. . . READ ON »
