NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 Launches In US on November 12


nvidia_tegra_note_7_directstylus_1The recently announced NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 is set to launch tomorrow in the US and a few days afterwards in Europe. The 7-inch tablet comes equipped with the beefy NVIDIA Tegra 4 SoC and a special stylus called NVIDIA DirectStylus.

NVIDIA’s first tablet offering falls directly in the budget range, though it comes with very few compromises. For one, the display has just mediocre resolution of 1280×800 pixels. The RAM is ‘only’ 1GB, but it might just be enough for some light-to-moderate multitasking. The rest of the specs are worth writing home about: as stated earlier, the Tegra Note 7 is powered by the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4 CPU based on the ARM Cortex-A15 architecture, coupled with the 72-core GeForce GPU. Naturally, it has a duo of cameras, the front one is 0,3MP, while the rear shooter is 5MP. It runs on Android 4.2 Jellybean with light customizations done by NVIDIA itself.

Arguably one of the key features of the Tegra Note 7 is its stylus, which offers extended functionality. It has several levels of pressure, thus allows drawing and writing on the screen with great precision. The tablet comes with a built-in Notes app, which is similar to the one found on the Galaxy Note family. The use of the stylus is demonstrated in this video leaked by the Italian site Notebook Italia:

And here’s the official teaser prepared by NVIDIA and leaked by the aforementioned site:
