NVIDIA Announces Tegra Note, a Tegra 4-powered Tablet Platform for OEM Partners

Tegra Note

There has been buzz surrounding a Tegra Note tablet floating around for the past month, but with no official word from NVIDIA, it was all up in the air. Recently, a device named Tegra Note hit the FCC, so it was basically only a matter of time until NVIDIA made an official announcement. This morning, the company finally broke its silence and unveiled the Tegra Note tablet platform. But before you get excited and start lining up to buy one, you should be made aware that the device – the Tegra Note itself – will not be for sale through NVIDIA. 

The tablet is powered by a Tegra 4 processor, features a “groundbreaking” back-facing camera, a full stylus, PureAudio sound, a full lineup of accessories and complete support for TegraZone games. What makes the tablet interesting is that NVIDIA is set to partner with other companies that will throw on their own logos and features, then release it to their customers. This process is called white-labeling, which we have discussed before in regards to NVIDIA and rumors surrounding its entry into the smartphone market.

It’s a complete tablet platform, designed by NVIDIA and brought to market by our partners.

It embodies the NVIDIA brand – from our hardware and software (right down to OTA updates), to our industrial design, accessories and network of partners in game development.

It elevates the abilities of our partners, so they can provide tablets packed with innovation and features at prices they may not have been able to deliver on their own. In turn, NVIDIA gains access to their deep sales and distribution expertise in regions worldwide.

The Tegra Note comes with a suggested retail price of $199. That’s good news for anyone looking to pick up a well-powered gaming slate. Once we start seeing devices hitting the streets that are produced using the Tegra Note platform, we will let you know.

    “Note” huh? Couldn’t think of a name that wasn’t already used by a top selling line of devices?

  • Jonathan Ly

    No faith in the Tegra processor, not after how the Nexus 7 2012 ran after the 4.2.2 update. Hell even after installing custom Roms I couldn’t stand the device.

    Won’t ever buy a Tegra device ever again.

    so now nVidia is trying to apply their video card business strategy to tablets now?

  • I’m so excited. Really interested to see how the stylus works and what apps are supported.

  • Raven

    Anyone know about the ports, slots, etc.? MicroSD? MicroHDMI? MicroUSB? Miracast?

  • Really interested to see how the stylus works and what apps are supported.

    Tegra used to be the cpu everyone wanted back in the gingerbread days…now it’s like meh. 199 is an intriguing price though.

      Another series of Android tablets also to launch this week use Intel’s new Clover-Trail processor and offer impressive performance for a mid-range device that outperforms many tablets with quad core processors.

      Ramos Technology has partnered with Intel to introduce the i-Series with 8″, 9″, 10″ and 12″ models – and all feature HD displays and GPS-

      Intel’s new processor with Hyper-Threading technology runs four threads simultaneously and outscores many mainstream quad-core tablets in benchmark testing.

      One model available immediately is the i-8 ($199) with an ultra-sleek design and is the world’s thinnest 8″ tablet– featuring a 7.9-inch HD screen, similar in size to the mini iPad– and almost as compact and easy to carry as a 7″ tablet, but with 40% more screen space, which makes viewing tablet content much easier – and the new i-8 matches most features of the Nexus 7, including GPS – plus MicroSD storage…
