The Android tablet market is about to get a massive shake up from the folks at NVIDIA. Many of you have probably seen the leaks of the NVIDIA Tegra Tab, and today we’re getting all the details. They aren’t selling it, instead they’ve built an entire platform around the Tegra 4 quad-core processor, and their partners like eVGA (from the PC space) will be selling impressive tablets starting at $199.
It’s like the HTC One tablet we’ll never get. Check out those speakers. The NVIDIA Tegra Note platform is an end-to-end solution. It will be a 7-inch HD tablet with the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4
processor and 2GB of RAM, front-facing PureAudio speakers, full stylus support with NVIDIA DirectStylus technology, NVIDIA’s Chimera camera tech which looks extremely stunning, and last but not least full gaming support with their TegraHD and TegraZone certified games. Last year NVIDIA announced the “Kai” reference design delivering quad-core tablets to the budget market. Which became the ASUS Nexus 7 we all know and love. With the Tegra Note however, it isn’t a reference design, it’s an entire Android tablet platform manufacturers can jump into at a low price. Not just the hardware. We can expect to see some quality Tegra 4 quad-core 7-inch gaming tablets from some of the top gaming companies in the PC space all delivering awesome Android tablets, starting at $199. There will be additional storage options and faster units at a higher price, but that $199 starting point sounds pretty awesome already. The tablets are said to start arriving at various retail locations starting within the next month or so.
