If we were to cherry-pick one major fault from our NVIDIA Shield tablet review, it would definitely be the slate’s storage space — 16GB just isn’t enough for a device built for gaming and media consumption. If you were holding off until the company put out a larger capacity version, your day has come: NVIDIA just announced that the 32GB LTE variant of the Shield is now available for pre-order. $399 buys the unlocked LTE tablet in its own right, but NVIDIA tells us that AT&T will be offering it for $299 on contract.

Google demonstrated ‘App Runtime’ earlier this year– a middleman (of sorts) that allowed Android apps to natively run on Chrome OS. Google has now made a set of these apps available for download. Read more…

SimCity BuildIt

SimCity hasn’t been on mobile devices for a while — the last title surfaced way back in 2010. You’ll get another crack at metropolis building pretty soon, though, as EA has quietly teased SimCity BuildIt for Android devices, iPhones and iPads. Details are scarce right now, but it’s already apparent that this will be a big, big visual upgrade over the last incarnation; you’ll see 3D graphics that more closely resemble SimCity‘s recent reboot than a cut-down phone release. We’ve reached out to EA for a launch date and more info on the game mechanics. However BuildIt works, we’re just hoping that it fares a lot better than its desktop counterpart.

HTC One M8 up close

Remember those hints of HTC returning to tablets? Yeah, the cat’s out of the bag. As part of its patent lawsuit against Qualcomm and Samsung, NVIDIA has revealed that it expects a Tegra K1-powered “HTC Nexus 9″ sometime within the third calendar quarter of the year. That would theoretically put the launch sometime before the end of September. However, don’t get your hopes up for a release that soon. HTC just sent out invitations for a “double exposure” media event on October 8th, and there’s still no guarantee that the Nexus 9 will surface at that gathering. Given that the slate is supposed to be running Android L, any unveiling will likely hinge as much on Google’s progress as it does HTC’s.

Dell Cast in action

If you happen to own one of Dell’s Venue tablets, you now have an easy way to put its content on a bigger screen. Dell has just launched the Cast, a simple stick that lets you link your slate to any HDMI-equipped display. You can either mirror your screen directly (much like Chromecast) or use the larger panel as a makeshift desktop, including multiple web browser windows. Shades of Motorola’s Webtop, anyone? The add-on is available now for $80, although you may need to be patient depending on your choice of platform. Only Android-based Venue tablets can use the Cast right away. You’ll have to wait until later this year to pair it with Windows-based models like the Venue 8 Pro.
