After entering the game console earlier this year with the Shield, the famed hardware-maker Nvidia has entered the tablet market by announcing its first Android tablet.
The device called Tegra Note will be distributed via its partners and has a Tegra 4 processor under the hood.
At the front is the 7 inch IPS LCD display of 1280 x 800 resolution (same as that of the first Nexus 7). It will also support input through a stylus. The OS running is stock Android of unknown version.
Under the hood, you get a 1 GB RAM with 16 GB expandable storage. The quad-core Tegra 4 processor under the hood is followed by Nvidia’s own 72-core GeForce Graphics.
Around the back is the 5 megapixel camera with HDR, followed by a 0.3 mp camera at the front. For connectivity, it has Bluetooth, microHDMI, microUSB and other options.
Here are the full specs of the Tegra Note:
- Stock Android running
- 7 inch IPS LCD display with resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels
- Quad-core Tegra 4 processor with 72-core GeForce GPU
- 1 GB RAM with 16 GB expandable storage
- 5 megapixel camera with HDR and slow-motion video
- 0.3 mp front camera
- Bluetooth, microHDMI, microUSB
- 10 hour worth HD video playback on a full charge
- Available for $199 for the starting model
The tablet will be available in October for $199. That’s tempting even though you can get a Nexus 7 2013 for just $30 more but if you want stylus support and can live with a more modest display, this tablet won’t serve you badly either.
