NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 tablet to go on sale starting November 19th


Buyers looking for an NVIDIA powered tablet will be able to buy a Tegra Note 7 tablet beginning November 19th for $199 with pre-orders starting today. The Tegra Note 7 was announced this past September as a partnership between NVIDIA and EVGA to bring an in-house branded tablet device sporting a stylus to market. At the $199 price point, the Tegra Note 7 is slightly less expensive than some other competitors like the Nexus 7 (2013) or the Kindle Fire HDX. However, users do give up some screen resolution as the Tegra Note 7 is only capable of a 1280×800 resolution. Perhaps taking a cue from Google, NVIDIA is shipping the Tegra Note 7 with a “pure” version of Android Jelly Bean. The Tegra Note 7 comes with a stylus that NVIDIA indicates has different “tips” that expand the functionality. You can check out how the stylus works after the break in a couple videos released by NVIDIA in conjunction with the announced availability of the device.

    Good idea and the price point is really good. I think pressure sensitivity and pinpoint precision on the galaxy note is still going to beat capacitive stylus for my needs, however… not sure how much I’d be using a paintbrush on a 7in tablet, and programs that do things with the pressure sensitive input ( like control opacity, blend rate etc) will probably not work with this. As an artist I value those things far more than simple control over line width, and I draw all the time on my gNote 2 with Clover Paint.

    i haven’t see a reviewer who can actually draw decently on the tegra note yet. I want to see some digital painting example on a tegra note!!!! Opacity, layers, etc!
