NVIDIA Announces The Evolution Of The Kai Platform: Say Hello To 'Tegra Note'

Last year, NVIDIA announced a then-groundbreaking tablet design called Kai. It was essentially a reference – a blueprint, if you will – for manufacturers to design and build extremely affordable tablets. The plan was clearly laid out, but the platform itself was incredibly flexible so the manufacturing costs and retail pricing could fluctuate as much as the design of the tablets themselves. Google's 2012 Nexus 7 was just one of the tablets that took advantage of Kai.

[Hands-On] Are Dynamic Keyboard's Big Keys A Big Deal?

So many keyboards strive to offer better suggestions in the bar above the keyboard, but this is an app which wants to do more with the data. Messing with the fundamentals of the keyboard is risky, though.

Verizon Won't Activate New LTE SIM Cards For The Nexus 7 LTE: 'Not All LTE Tablets Are Created Equal'

Update: Verizon has responded to our inquiry about the Nexus 7 LTE registration issues. A company representative said that the Nexus 7 LTE would be certified for the Verizon network at some point.
