Codrut Nistor,

NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 arrived in late 2013 as the direct predecessor of the notorious Shield Tablet. This 7-inch Android slate made for gamers is powered by NVIDIA's Tegra 4 processor and 1 GB RAM, next to 16 GB of internal storage. Its touchscreen sports a resolution of 1,280X800 pixels, and it launched loaded with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

Google+ user Ashish Tripathi posted earlier this morning a screenshot of his Tegra Note 7 slate displaying the OTA update notification. Earlier this week, NVIDIA also released an Android 5.1 Lollipop update for the Shield Portable game console. Tegra Note 7 will get the following improvements after the update:

  • various performance, security and usability enhancements
  • app compatibility fixes
  • updates to Lasso and DirectStylus features
  • display, audio, network fixes and optimizations

While Tegra Note 7 is out of production and could get pretty hard to find a brand-new one at online retailers, those interested to get a good 7-inch Android 5.1 Lollipop tablet for a great price can find enough used units to pick from on eBay starting around $130 USD. New ones can also be found on eBay, but for more than twice that price.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
