Nvidia Tegra NOTE 7 Comes With LTE Connectivity
Nvidia has added its i500 LTE modem and its 4G LTE cellular connection to its 7-inch Android tablet, the Nvidia Tegra Note 7.
Availabile over the next few months to Western Europe, Brazil, and Ukraine, the Tegra NOTE 7 includes one of the world's fastest processors, Tegra 4, a stylus, audio, Android 4.4.2 (KitKat), and NVIDIA gaming. And that's at a starting price of just $199 (Wi-Fi version).
Tegra NOTE 7 is available with LTE and HSPA+ mobile connectivity, and it can operate on carriers across the world.
The device's LTE connectivity is provided by Nvidia's cellular LTE modem chipset, the fifth-gen NVIDIA i500 processor. i500 leverages a software-defined radio technology - meaning it can deliver new capabilities via software without requiring an entirely new chipset. It is also 40 percent the size of conventional modems but has 4x the processing capability of its predecessor.
The entire Tegra NOTE 7 family also received an over-the-air update that upgraded the operating system to Android 4.4.2 (Kit Kat), which includes support for Gamepad Mapper. Introduced first for the Nvidia SHIELD portable gaming and entertainment device, Gamepad Mapper turns touch-based Android games into ones that can be played with the physical controls of a Bluetooth controller.
The Tegra NOTE 7 LTE is starting at $299 in the second quarter from EVGA (U.S., Western Europe), UK Dixons (U.K), Gigabyte, Holo and more.
The Tegra NOTE 7 will have to compete with Google's Nexus 7 tablet.
