The tablet market is burgeoning and there are now numerous tablets in various price points for consumers to choose from. With the likes of the Google Nexus, the Kindle Fire, iPad Mini, and the not-yet-announced Tesco Hudl, there is certainly enough choice to ensure that buyers can find the right device at the right price. The question is, is there room for yet another entry and will the Tegra Note have the capability to compete with these well-established or budget priced models?
Chip maker Nvidia has unveiled what it claims is the fastest 7 inch tablet in the world that is definitely geared towards fans of gaming on the go.
The Tegra Note will not be sold directly by Nvidia but rather by a number of partners. It has a 72 core GPU and quad core processor and will ship with 16GB of internal storage, which can be upgraded to 32GB via the microSD slot.
It will be sporting a 1280 x 800 pixel screen and have a 5mp camera on the rear and a VGA camera on the front. It will also ship with two styluses to further improve input options.
Nvidia has said that while they will not be selling the device themselves, it will have a £179.99 recommended retail price.
The Tegra will be going up against the latest Google Nexus tablet and the Kindle Fire as well as the more expensive iPad Mini and the Windows based Surface Tablet. According to recent reports, Tesco are even set to unveil their own budget £99 7” tablet next week although little is known of this device as yet.
