NVIDIA has long been known for their incredible hardware inside the “box,” but now they want to go outside that box with their new EVGA Tegra Note 7 tablet – and it is finally available on Newegg.com for $199.99 and their wonderful FREE two-day shipping included. It was just two months ago, when they announced the tablet, but this is the first time we have seen it for sale.
The specifications are as follows:
- Processor – NVIDIA Tegra 4 mobile processor with quad-core Cortex-A15 CPU and 72-core GeForce GPU
- Display – 7-inch HD IPS LCD display (1280 x 800)
- Camera – Rear 5MP and front 1.3MP FFC
- 1GB of RAM
- Storage – 16 GB storage with micro SD expandable up to an additional 32 GB
- Audio – Front facing “HD Audio” stereo speakers with a unique bass-reflex port
- Stylus – Chisel and Brush tips for natural writing and broad strokes
- Peripherals – Micro HDMI connector to drive big screen TV videos and gaming
- OS – Android 4.2.2 at launch
- Software Updates – Over The Air software updates directly from NVIDIA
- Battery Life – 4,100mAh
You get a lot for $200 – the processor is first rate, but to get down to the $200 mark, sacrifices had to be made – most notably in the 720p display and the 1GB of RAM. Though certainly designed with gamers in mind, the Tega Note goes way beyond simply gaming, by offering up features not found on a $200 tablet.
The Tega Note really packs some great software to take advantage of the tablet for writing, capturing images, and sharing your items – it is as if NVIDIA was taking a page from Samsung’s Note series tablets and phablet – making the device more useful and truly offering an electronic “tablet” with a writing device.
The Tega Note comes with an advanced stylus, that takes advantage of NVIDIA’s DirectStylus and software, claiming that you can experience the same writing sensation as writing on paper – complete with Finer Point and Broader Stroke Control.
But gamers beware – NVIDIA certainly has not forgotten you. With NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 SoC, you gain access to some titles that are off-limits to the rest of the Android world. Specialty Bluetooth controls work with the Tegra Note to give you that unparalleled gaming experience, as only NVIDIA can provide.
