NVIDIA Will Offer Tablet for $199

If you’re looking for a bargain that will help your business go mobile more quickly, this could be it. NVIDIA shared more details about its anticipated 7-inch Tegra Note on the official NVIDIA blog recently.

But the one detail grabbing most of the attention will likely be the price: $199.

Tegra Note Not the Perfect Machine

NVIDIA says the device’s Tegra 4 processor — successor to the Tegra 3 processor that powered the Google Nexus 7 — will make it “the fastest 7-inch tablet in the world.”

However, if photo and video capability are important in your mobile device, the Tegra Note’s 5 megapixel rear camera doesn’t compare with, say, the 13 megapixel camera of the Samsung Note 3.

And, of course, if you’d prefer a Windows device for compatibility with the rest of your office environment, the new Tegra Note is powered by Android.

Other Important Features

Still, the new device will offer:

  • A larger screen than phablets like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (7-inches as opposed to 5.7 inches),
  • A very competitive price for devices so far in the tablet market,
  • 16 GB of expandable storage capacity,
  • 10 hours of battery power even when playing HD video,
  • A flexible stylus the company stresses will be effective for note-taking.

In the post on NVIDIA’s official blog, Tegra Director of Product Marketing, Matt Wuebbling said the tablet would likely be available in the U.S. in the next few months.

But, if you’re looking for tablet options for your small business, you may want to wait. New Windows tablets may also be coming soon from Nokia, and even Dell. And it remains to be seen whether new lower prices in the industry may be becoming the norm.

  1. This really sounds good for the small business owner on a budget. I purchased an android-based tablet at a discount store for $30 just to see if it was worthwhile. Well, you get what you pay for. THIS one sounds like it might be worth the money.

  2. A tablet from NVIDIA? Interesting. Knowing that the brand is known for good graphic display, it would be interesting to see it on a tablet. And since it equals the features of some of the most popular tablet brands, I think that it may fare quite well in the market.

  3. I am fairly sure the price ot Tegra notes will be ~$200 (most speculation is @ $199). I will say this, if EVGA or PNY (US distributors) release one at $119 that is an instant buy for me.

  4. I don’t want to be the bad guy, but this doesn’t even sound like a good beginner tablet. You get what you pay for and with this one, it doesn’t seem like much.

    • WTF are you talking about? Tegra 4 is one of the fastest processors, its slim bezelled, 16GB, expandable, 10 hours battery, comes with pressure sensitive stylus (ala note) and one of the most advanced camera systems – it may not have 13MP, but it will know what to do with the pixels it has!

      I believe you are just trolling.

  5. The price is not $119. It is $199. It is in the link the author posted in the first paragraph
