The NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 is an Android tablet with a Tegra 4 quad-core processor, a $199 starting price, and an emphasis on graphics and gaming. Now it’s also available with 4G LTE and HSPA+ mobile broadband connectivity.
NVIDIA has announced that Tegra Note 7 LTE will be available for $299 starting in the second quarter of 2014.
