NVIDIA Tegra Note Launches November 19, Priced to Sell at $199

Tegra Note

NVIDIA announced the Tegra Note, produced by EVGA, back in September. The device features a Tegra 4 processor, as well as a 7″ 1280 x 800 display; lower than what the new Nexus 7 sports for resolution at 1920 x 1200, but the Nexus 7 is also priced a bit higher and the Tegra Note has a couple of other added bonuses. NVIDIA finally announced official pricing and availability for the tablet this morning, which will begin November 19 for just $199.99. 

The selling features of this tablet are the Note’s high-tech DirectStylus, as well as a back-facing 5MP camera that features an HDR mode and the company’s Chimera computational photography technology. If you are more of a mobile gamer, then the tablet should fit into your lifestyle just fine, as well. With the Tegra 4, your gaming world is open to plenty of Tegra-optimized titles that you can find on Google Play and inside of the TegraZone application.

Again, it launches November 19 for just $199.99, and pre-orders should also open up on Newegg starting within the next day or two.

    OK. Slightly ignorant question time. Between the NVIDIA Tegra Note, Asus MeMO Pad HD 7 & Nexus 7 (2012). Which should I get for my teenager? Mind you he has already cracked a screen on a Motorola RAZR M & a Lenovo IdeaTab.

      TN7, since it’s the best compromise. I’ve messed with the new N7. it’s that type of design where it’s easily dropped. TN7, decent price, and good hardware

  • Lord ZYRK

    Did anyone else notice that on the brush part they didn’t lift up on the Note 8 to make a thinned line?

  • CHRIS42060

    HD is getting so old. I am thinking I will stick with the Nexus 7 (2013) until they start making 4K tablets. (kidding, but it will probably happen eventually)

  • d-rock

    It looks like a huge black HTC One lol

  • j

    This thing will fly at such a low resolution. FPS on this compared to the new N7 will be night and day, but of course, you are sacrificing clarity.

  • Ej McCarty

    New nexus 10 or gtfo

  • hkklife

    Too small and awkwardly spec’d between the current N7 & last year’s N7. This should have been a stylus-free, 8″ 1080P tablet designed to go head to head with the iPad Mini w/ Retina . Since it looks like we aren’t going to see a Nexus 10 refresh or the mythical Nexus 8 from LG, this would’ve been a good runner-up. Samsung’s mediocre Tab 8 and Note 8 have that size category nearly to themselves, which is a crying shame.

      Why does everything need to go head-to-head with the ipad mini?

  • YankInDaSouth

    Pretty decent specs at a really great price!! Think I just found my son’s Christmas present …

    • Ej McCarty

      Show your son you love him and get him the n7 2013

      • YankInDaSouth

        Well, he’s 9 so I don’t think he’s going to mind either way LOL Plus, it’ll be for school as well as for fun and I like the idea of the pen without having to pay Samsung price :-)

      • guest20

        the only 2 things N7.2 got going for it is better screen and updates. No microSD, HDMIout, no stylus

  • buckymorrison

    what version of Android does this run?

    • renz

      It will ship with 4.2.2. One of the reviewer (i forgot which site) did ask about future updates and nvidia mention than 4.3 will coming in december and they were working with 4.4 right now

  • Bryan

    I am surprised they are using the Note name, since Samsung uses that for their stylus products. Seems like this is another lawsuit waiting to happen.

    • guest20

      i don’t think you can patent the word “NOTE” and also, Apple started the suing, not Samsung. Apple is the original corp that “copy cat” everyone else, albiet they did it better.

  • Bruce

    This is what I want to get my daughter for her birthday next month.

  • Ajmcnicol

    Front facing speakers…a pretty decent cpu/gpu…and a good resolution (nexus 7s is ridiculous for a 7″ screen”) and less then a nexus 7. Plus a stylus… I may get this vice the new nexus which i was contemplating.

    • JMonkeYJ

      The resolution of the new N7 is a very obvious improvement to me over the old one (which was the same resolution as this tab). But maybe I just have sharp eyes or something because the resolution of HTC One’s display was very obviously better to me than the N4’s, also.

      • dark_funk

        For text, even without the sharpest eyes, the resolution will likely be a benefit. For photographic / video / gaming uses, the resolution benefit will be negligible at that size.

        Still, 720p at 7″ ain’t bad for any use, as long as the panel is good in terms of contrast and color reproduction.

        I’d still get the N7 over this, but it’s certainly competitively priced.

    • Big_EZ

      The resolution isn’t good, and if you think the 2013 Nexus 7’s resolution is overkill then you need to get your eyes checked. The old Nexus 7, and this tablet, has decent resolution, but in no way is it good. The New Nexus 7 has a perfect resolution for a 7″ device.

  • n11

    Hmm, pretty cool. I could see this really competing with the Tab and N7. I would even consider getting one at some point in the future, but have a N7 right now.

    • Justin W

      I already have the 2013 N7, and I’m finding myself trying to convince me into getting the Tegra.

  • Force286

    Does anyone know how much ram the tegra note 7 comes with ?

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

      2GeeBeez of RAM.

      • Hawkye

        I only see 1GeeBeez every review I have seen and NewEgg says 1GB.

        • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

          Failz on GeeBeez :(

        that’s a bummer.

  • Zander

    This actually looks pretty great coming from someone who likes to draw digitally and doesn’t want to spend a lot of money.

    • aBabyPenguin

      I was skeptical about the stylus at first, but it is starting to look like more than just an angled $10 stylus. I’ll be watching this as well. I might consider it over the expensive Samsungs, even if they have the amazing Wacom tech.

      • guest20

        Samsungs Wacom is slow, compared to this. this has much better response. TN7 FTW!
