NVIDIA's 7-inch Android Tegra Tab caught on camera
It was less than one month ago that we first heard about NVIDIA getting into the hardware game with plans to release two Android tablets, one of which could launch the Tegra 5 chipset early next year. But, the Tegra Tab is expected to be NVIDIA's first piece of hardware, and while we've seen fairly high quality pics of it before, it has just been caught on camera again.

The images come from Taiwan's National Communications Commission, which certified the device this past week. The 7-inch tablet is listed as model P1640. Previous rumors have the specs of the tablet including an NVIDIA Tegra 4 SoC clocked at 1.8GHz, a 7-inch display at 1280x768 resolution, a 5MP rear camera, a front camera of unknown quality, stylus support and Android 4.2.2. 

There is no word on pricing or availability of the device, but if it has been certified by the NCC, it could be hitting Taiwan's store shelves soon enough. There's no word on if the tablet will be making its way to the U.S. It's expected that NVIDIA will announce more this week at IFA in Berlin.

Gotta agree with you here -- if nVidia is touting top-of-the-line mobile graphics you had better back that statement with the pixels to push.

It could be a good opportunity to show up the Adreno 320/330 and PowerVR graphics and prove to the manufacturers and consumers that if you want lag/stutter free pixel-dense screens, that Tegra is the way to go. This is definitely not doing that.

At this point I suspect they're making these tablets just to get rid of the extra Tegra 4s that never sold...

Don't expect any performance issues with that res. You can admit that now.

i think 768p or 720p for 7 inch is almost enough but 1080p is better (you should also consider that 1080p need more power for rendering)

That's an 'interesting' back. Reminds me of a Toshiba ToughBook, or an OtterBox.

Tegra4 is in two tablets from Toshiba and thats all I know of. Now there is talk about Tegra 5. Pathetic.

fail like shield, fact is that nvidia is trying to find power guzzlers in android community. but unlike in the pc gaming community, android community can praise the beauty of software,hardware and not only power and graphics
