NVIDIA Tegra Note passes through FCC showing all its stuff!

tegra-note-2

NVIDIA is not known as a device manufacturer, but they have done a pretty good job with the Shield (read our review to learn more). Could it be time for them to venture more into this market? It seems so: an NVIDIA Tegra Note (or Tab) has been making the rounds around the rumor world and it seems to be almost ready for prime time.

NVIDIA’s upcoming tablet has just passed through the FCC with different images showing both names (Tegra Tab and Tegra Note). We are not sure what the name will end up being, but what we do know is some of the specs revealed in the FCC filing.

NVIDIA Tegra Note specs

  • Android Jelly Bean
  • Tegra 4 processor (new variant)
  • 7-inch 1280x800p IPS display
  • 2 GB of RAM
  • 5 MP rear camera / HD front camera
  • Stylus support and features
  • 3200 or 4100 mAh battery

This seems like quite the mid-range tablet, but this also means the device should come with a nice price tag. And with NVIDIA being the manufacturer, the device will more than likely be fit for some great gaming and graphics.

We have to keep waiting until NVIDIA decides to show off what’s going on with this tablet. It looks like it might be a good gaming tablet with a fair price, though. It’s hard to compete in the tablet market at this point, so we have to wonder what it is NVIDIA is planning to impress us with.

The specs are nothing too surprising, so either the price or software have to make a strong impression for this tablet to succeed. What would entice you to purchase the Tegra Note?

    Needs to be 1920×1200 or higher. Is the bootloader unlockable? Will they open-source all the bits and pieces needed for custom ROMs (they have a very poor history with open source)?

      Screw it. If it’s $100, I’ll buy 2.

        you definitely don’t know NVidia… they always charge a premium price… most likely this will cost $300

      Yeah, they dropped the ball as far as I’m concerned. I’ll happily use my new N7 with screen bragging rights.

    Its biggest problem, is its 6 months too late. With phones and tablets having higher res with more speed makes this tablet old before it starts.

  • Gideon Waxfarb

    Fantastic – another mid-range 7″ Android tablet. Just what we need :P

  • thedicemaster

    actually, they are 2 different tablets.
    it’s quite clear from that image.
    the tegra tab will be the cheap model, and the tegra note will include a rear camera, micro SD slot, HDMI port, and stylus.

    “NVIDIA Tegra Note passes through FCC showing all its stuff!”

    Needs more stuff.

    Since the Nexus 7 line 7 inch tablets need to be at a certain price point in order to be noticed.
