NVIDIA has unveiled Tegra Note tablet platform, previously known by the name of Tegra Tab. The tablet would be brought to the market by NVIDIA’s hardware partners. The platform allows for the company’s partner to deliver low cost tablets to the consumers based on Tegra Note. NVIDIA has put a suggestive price tag of $199 on the Tegra Note.
As expected, Tegra Note is powered by a Tegra 4 quad core Cortex A15 processor with a 72 core GPU. NVIDIA claims this to be the most powerful chip present on any tablet. The tablet also features a 7 inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. There’s also a 5 megapixel rear camera, VGA front-facing unit, 16GB internal storage, and microSD card slot. NVIDIA claims a battery life of 10 plus hours on HD playback. Also, NVIDIA would directly be providing the software updates on this one via OTA, so that users don’t have to wait for the latest version of the OS to hit their tablets.
However, besides the Tegra 4 processor, the most interesting bit of Tegra Note is the inclusion of a stylus based on NVIDIA’s DirectStylus technology. That, bundled with the related apps provides finer point and broader stroke control according to the company.
Hardware manufacturers including ASUS, Toshiba, HP and XOLO will be among the first to release tablets based on the Tegra Note platform.
