Are you looking for a powerful little tablet for yourself, or perhaps a Christmas present? Then you might want to mosey on over to Newegg, where EVGA's model of the NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 reference hardware is currently on sale. You can pick one up for just $129.99, an impressive $70 off of the retail price. Newegg is also offering free economy shipping via its "super Eggsaver" option. Sorry, international readers: though Newegg has stores in a handful of other countries, it looks like this deal is limited to the US.
Oh, EVGA. I know you're new to this whole tablet thing, but you should seriously watch your automated email system just a little bit better.
Today, owners of EVGA products – which includes the Tegra Note 7 tablet – are receiving an email that contains some fantastic tips and pointers...for those who have purchased EVGA video cards. Not such good advice for those who only own the TN7.
If an always-connected tablet is something your heart has always desired but your brain won't let you open your wallet long enough to pay what carriers are asking for their branded tablets, the heavens may have just opened up for you. NVIDIA is unleashing a mobile network-connected version of the the EVGA Tegra Note 7 on the world, which will be available sometime in Q2. And the timing couldn't be better – the Wi-Fi TN7 just got updated to Android 4.4.2 last night, which also brings NVIDIA's GamePad Mapper to the device.
It's been just over two months since NVIDIA announced its white box platform to promote the Tegra architecture, and now EVGA is demonstrating the value of that particular strategy. Newegg is selling the EVGA Tegra Note 7 for $199.99, and as far as we can tell, it's the only place that you can get one. The Tegra 4-powered tablet is shipping out now after a week delay.
The obvious star here is NVIDIA's Tegra 4 SoC, the same screaming fast processor and GPU combo found in the NVIDIA Shield.
