Tegra Note 7 gets Android 5.1 Lollipop
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.
