Tegra Note 7 adds LTE connectivity

Tegra Note 7 adds LTE connectivity
The benchmark bustin' Tegra Note 7, the tablet that NVIDIA is developing with partners, is now being outfitted with 4G LTE connectivity. In addition, the Wi-Fi only version is receiving an update to Android 4.4.2. The update includes Gameplan Mapper, coming over from the Shield. With this feature, touch based Android games can be played using a Bluetooth game controller.

The tablet scored 33,771 on the AnTuTu Benchmark site and is being sold to third party manufacturers like EVGA in North America. The Wi-Fi only slate is priced at $199 while the 4G LTE variant will be available next quarter for $299.

The NVIDIA i500 modem being used for 4G LTE connectivity offers software-defined radio technology. That means it can add new capabilities with a software update instead of adding a new chipset. NVIDIA tells us that it is 40% the size of a conventional modem, but has 4 times the processing power of its predecessor.

The Tegra Note 7 is equipped with a 7 inch LCD display with resolution of 1280 x 800, and is powered by the Tegra 4 processor. 1GB of RAM is inside, with 16GB of native storage on board. A 32GB capacity microSD slot is available. Back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 5MP and .3MP respectively, and the battery provides up to 10 hours of HD video.

WXGA screen? Games would definitely run smoothly on that device

Obviously, you're not Alan.. Neither was I addressing my comment to you. Or do you need me to explain why I placed my comment under yours? Figure it out, smart pants!

Just like good ol' nexus 7. With slot card. For $200 it's cheap, since it's American made.

Run on kitkat, so it shouldbe fine. And for 200 bucks that's plenty.

just the same TN7 that launch last year. nvidia just add their own Icera i500 modem into the unit. the lack of RAM is disappointing to some but as the review points it out the lack of RAM did not hamper the experience. low res (but still acceptable res on 7 inch screen), combined with near stock android and Kit Kat, 1GB should do just fine on this tablet.

it depends on what you want to get from your tablet. for example microSD slot or cheap tablet with good enough stylus support. and some other go for it's performance. this tablet was about as fast as any device with snapdragon 800 inside but it doesn't cost near much of those device.

Honestly I'm very interested in this TN7. I hope it'll be available in my country. Btw I've never used tegra- powered devices. Are they any good???

I was hoping for tegra k1 but this is good and not bad specs if it had 3gb of ram it might actually score 35k or more nice work but we're still waiting for tegra to produce anything tired of all this teasing. I would like to believe that manufacturers are getting tired if the same old thing and want something new. Hey there's always ubuntu they're always looking for partners
