Nvidia reveals updated version of Tegra Note 7 tablet


Chip manufacturer Nvidia has revealed an updated version of Tegra Note 7 tablet, which now has LTE support, as well as Android 4.4 KitKat mobile operating system. The new Nvidia Tegra Note 7 LTE is very similar to the original model which the company launched in November 2013.


The latest version of the device will come with the added bonus of HSPA+ and LTE connectivity. In Europe, the Tegra Note 7 will support the 800, 1800 and 2600 LTE bands and it has been suggested that the device will be released in the UK. In a blog post on February 21, 2014, the company said , “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 7in Android tablet.”

The blog post also stated that the i500 modem leverages a very specific software-defined radio technology, which means that it can bring new capabilities through software without having a completely new chipset. The Tegra Note 7 LTE will run on Google’s Android 4.4.2 KitKat mobile operating system instead of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

The tablet will be available globally from the second quarter of 2014 and will be priced at $299.
