Tegra Note 7 tablet 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.
