The tablet lists for $199 and is powered by a Tegra 4 SoC that gives it very competitive performance, in league with Intel's Bay Trail and the Apple A7 SoC. Other upsides include a stylus for pen-style input and a nice complement of ports and slots.
The downsides? Mostly how the Note 7's 1280x800 IPS display suffers in comparison to the one in the $229 Google Nexus 7. The Tegra tablet's flash storage performance looks to be rather iffy, too. Still, it appears Nvidia has begun staking a claim to a portion of this very competitive market.
The Tegra Note 7 is available for pre-order at Newegg now, with a release date of 11/19.
