Apple seems fairly content letting everyone else battle it out for the under-$200 tablet market share crown, and if you haven't noticed, the war that's waging down there is getting pretty intense. Google's heralded Nexus 7 has a bit of like-minded competition today courtesy of the Tegra Note. Designed by EVGA, the Tegra Note 7 packs NVIDIA's 1.8GHz Tegra 4
, a stylus, a built-in 5MP rear camera, 1GB of DDR3L-1600 memory, a 7" HD IPS display (1280x800), and a VGA front-facing webcam.
There's also 16GB of storage, a microSD expansion slot, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, GPS + GLONASS, an ambient light sensor, HDMI output, USB 2.0, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a 4100mAh battery that's supposedly good for up to 8 hours of HD video playback.
Pre-orders are open now at just $199, and if this one doesn't suit you, NVIDIA says that other Tegra 4-based units will be shipping soon from PNY, ZOTAC, Gigabyte, ADVENT, and XOLO.
