NVIDIA announced the Tegra Note 7 tablet back in mid-September and now the slate is finally coming to the United States. The 7-inch Android tablet built by NVIDIA will become available on November 12 in the States, while Europe "should probably not be far behind," Fudzilla reports.
In addition to the technical details revealed two months ago, it seems the NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 will get Gamestream support, a unique feature that can only be experienced on NVIDIA Shield.
Thanks to Gamestream, users can play GeForce games on their tablets while using USB game controllers and even full size keyboards. Unfortunately console mode has not been confirmed yet, but since the device features HDMI this is possible.
As a reminder, these are the specs of NVIDIA's tablet revealed back in September:
- Processor: 1.8 GHz quad-core Tegra 4 (ARM Cortex-A15 processor and 72-core GeForce GPU)
- Memory/Storage: 1 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage and microSD slot up to 32 GB
- Display: 7-inch IPS touchscreen with 1,280X800 resolution
- Audio: "HD audio" dual front-facing stereo speakers with bass reflex port
- Cameras: 5 MP back-facing and VGA front
- Connectivity: WiFi, Bluetooth, micro HDMI
- Operating system: Android 4.3 Jelly Bean (maybe KitKat, this needs to be confirmed by NVIDIA)
- Autonomy: 10 hours of HD video playback
The tablet integrates support for NVIDIA TegraZone, comes with a DirectStylus pressure sensing stylus and is expected to be available for purchase at $199, but the price still needs to be confirmed by NVIDIA.
