$199 EVGA Tegra Note 7 tablet will be out on November 19, pre-orders start today
Back in September, Nvidia unveiled the Tegra Note 7 tablet and platform, and now we’re starting to slowly see the first devices based on it hitting the streets. Following in the footsteps of the Advent Vega Tegra Note 7 in the UK, EVGA is set to bring its very own Tegra Note 7 to the US of A, and soon.
EVGA, as you may know, is a Greek dairy company. Just kidding, that’s Evga. EVGA makes motherboards and graphics cards based on Nvidia chipsets. So it’s pretty much a natural partner for the ailing mobile chip developer. As far as we know, this is EVGA’s first foray into the tablet space, as it tries to help Nvidia get out of the rough patch it’s been through recently in the mobile world.
The EVGA Tegra Note 7 is identical to any other Tegra Note 7 – after all, Nvidia specced the tablet and is just offering it for co-branding to these companies. So expect EVGA’s contribution to the slate to be one logo and the distribution work (which should come in easy, seeing as how it’s already got agreements in place with major retailers, for its other products).
The EVGA Tegra Note 7 will be available at Newegg on November 19 for $199. Pre-orders are set to start today (though they’re not live yet). This is the exact price point that Nvidia announced for the tablet, so no surprises here. Sure, you save $30 compared to the new Nexus 7, but you do lose some things (such as higher screen resolution) too.
Once again, here’s a reminder of the Tegra Note 7’s specs: it comes with a 7-inch 1,280×800 touchscreen, a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4 processor with 72-core GPU and a fifth power-saving core, a 5 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front camera, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage space, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a stylus. It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
