Rumors have been swirling that NVIDIA is interested in launching its own brand tablet line, which should be an easy transition for the company after SHIELD. There's been chatter of a high-end Android tablet built around the company's Tegra 5 platform, and also a more affordable 7-inch slate, pictures of which have found their way to the web.

Chinese language website MyDrivers.com posted a couple of authentic looking shots of of the Tegra Tab 7's backside, giving viewers a glimpse of the tablet's NVIDIA-inspired styling. A textured grip runs down the spine and is shaped like an hourglass, with plastic wrapping over the two sides.

There looks to be a slot for a stylus, a feature that would help the Tegra Tab 7 stand out from the crowd. You can also spy a rear-facing camera, power switch, 3.5mm audio jack, microHDMI and microUSB ports, and a SIM card slot.

Most other details are a mystery, though MyDrivers.com seems to think the built-in camera is 5-megapixels and the processor a Tegra 4 chip.

The stylus is a great touch. Can't wait to see this thing come to market.

I dunno. I have a stylus on the Galaxy Note 8 here and I almost never use it. I want to know what resolution that screen is though.

Despite the Samsung S-PEN software, the problem with stylus/pen usage is that aside from drawing and note taking that there aren't any general purpose reasons to use a stylus/pen with Android...

A stylus/pen makes more sense when running a desktop OS like Windows because they require more precision than capacitive touch can provide on small screens.

However, it is possible to put Android apps into a windowed and tiled view that's similar to a desktop. The Galaxy Note 8 only partially does this with side by side app view and with switching between apps but Rockchip and others are showing that it can go a step further and provide stacked or tiled windows of apps...

On a small 7" screen this can suddenly create a need for the precision of a stylus/pen...

Assuming of course they intend this to be a Android tablet... they could always go with RT or desktop Linux instead... or maybe even opt for a remote desktop feature where a stylus/pen would become more useful than capacitive touch...

It looks like a silicone case on the tablet instead of the tablet itself. Maybe a case won't be needed lol
