NVIDIA’s new AndroidWorks embraces even non-Tegra devices

NVIDIA just launched its shiny new SHIELD console, both the regular 16 GB model and the 500 GB "Pro" version, just in time for Google I/O last week and Computex this week. But as sweet as a gaming device might be, it's strength can only really be measured by the amount of content available for it. And to help create more content for its SHIELD devices, which in this case means Android games, NVIDIA is introducing a new tool based off its GameWorks tools called, what else, AndroidWorks.

NVIDIA SHIELD, “Pro” version appears, disappears from Amazon

It might be nigh time for NVIDIA's take on an Android TV gaming rig for your living room to come to market. That is, if the "accidentally" outing of the NVIDIA SHIELD is any indication. Amazon's product listings showed, and then swiftly removed, the NVIDIA SHIELD as well as an unannounced SHIELD Pro model, hinting that we're close to seeing one or both in the retail flesh soon.
