Tegra NOTE 7 Gets Connected; World’s Speediest 7-Inch Android Tablet Now With LTEFebruary 21, 2014
Our Tegra NOTE 7 is getting a new family member – one that comes with great connections.
We’re adding our i500 LTE modem – and its 4G LTE cellular connection – to the world’s fastest 7-inch Android tablet.
We’re also expanding the Tegra NOTE 7’s availability, bringing it over the next few months to Western Europe, Brazil, and Ukraine.
The Tegra NOTE 7 serves up a bundle of cutting-edge mobile technologies – including one of the world’s fastest processors, Tegra 4, a superb stylus, exceptional audio, Android 4.4.2 (KitKat), and, of course, great NVIDIA gaming. And that’s at a starting price of just $199.
Now, we’re added lightning-fast mobile data to the mix. Tegra NOTE 7 is available with LTE and HSPA+ mobile connectivity, and it can operate on popular carriers across the world.
With cellular connectivity, consumers can now get access to the web, check out maps and play videos anywhere they go by purchasing a minimum data plan from many carriers.
The Tegra NOTE 7 LTE’s worldwide connectivity is provided by our cellular LTE modem chipset, the fifth-gen NVIDIA i500 processor. i500 leverages a unique software-defined radio technology – meaning it can deliver new capabilities via software without requiring an entirely new chipset. Another big plus is higher efficiency – it’s only 40 percent the size of conventional modems but has 4x the processing capability of its predecessor.
The entire Tegra NOTE 7 family also received an over-the-air update that upgraded the operating system to Android 4.4.2 (Kit Kat), which includes support for Gamepad Mapper. Introduced first for our SHIELD portable gaming and entertainment device, Gamepad Mapper turns touch-based Android games into ones that can be enjoyed with the physical controls of a Bluetooth controller.
Look for the Tegra NOTE 7 LTE starting at $299 from partners worldwide* starting in the second quarter.
