NVIDIA has issued a voluntary recall for its SHIELD 8" gaming tablets, sold between July 2014 and July 2015, due to a possible fire hazard. Owners of the device, which numbers close to 90,000, are urged to stop using the device - except to back up data and participate in the recall.
Four cases have been recorded so far, including two where the lithium-ion battery left physical damage to floors.
