Nvidia’s Kai program from last year was successful enough that the company decided to continue this year. Thanks to the program, for an attractive price of $199 you could buy a tablet with unprecedented quality of performance. It looks like Nvidia is ready to repeat its move with its Nvidia Tegra Note tablet. The price will remain unchanged and will start at $199. However, the tablet will have to offer more than ever before. The Tegra Note tablet is not only actual device but also a reference design, which means that it will not be sold by Nvidia itself but through its partners which will offer the tablet under their own brands.
Nvidia Tegra Note with DirectStylus Pro
The chip has a built-in support for a stylus that comes bundled with the device. The DirectStylus Pro Pack includes interchangeable tips for varied writing styles. The Tegra Note offers 16 GB of internal memory with microSD slot for storage expansion.
The tablet features front-facing stereo speakers with bass reflex port, that according to the manufacturer “the widest frequency range in a tablet.” The near-perfect tablet has one weak spot, though.
Tegra Note’s 7-inch IPS screen has an unimpressive resolution of just 1280 x 800 pixels. It is not that huge drawback, but Nvidia could have tried harder, especially since for just $30 more you can get the Nexus 7 with a 1920 x 1200 display.
