The Tegra Note boasts a 7-inch 1280 x 800 resolution IPS display, 16GB of memory and dual-facing cameras (VGA webcam on the front, 5MP rear camera which promises 100-frame-per-second slow motion recording), while the Tegra 4 system-on-chip is tailored for gaming with a 72-core GeForce GPU and quad-core Cortex A-15 CPU.
The tablet will run the “latest version of the OS” — which presumably means Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, will offer a 10-hour battery life and grant access to Nvidia’s own TegraZone gaming portal – an area where gaming enthusiasts can find Tegra-optimized games.
Nvidia says that the tablet will also support Nvidia’s [...]
During an interview with TabTimes, a senior executive detailed the slate’s reading mode and showed the innovative bookshelf view which acts as an easy gateway to your favorite magazines and books.
The Arc 10 HD launches at the end of October for $399.99 and offers some impressive specs, most notably a 10-inch 2560 x 1600 resolution display, Android 4.2, Nvidia’s quad-core 1.8GHz Tegra 4 processor and Miracast Wi-Fi technology for streaming media.
Benchmark results recently showed up at GFXBench, with these revealing a HP device with a high-resolution 1600 x 1200 display, an Nvidia Tegra 4 ARM Cortex A-15 processor and the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
The results have subsequently been removed from the website although the folks at Notebook Italia and The Droid Guy managed to grab screenshots.
HP recently returned to the Android tablet market with the low-end Slate 7 and the hybrid Slatebook X2.
Both tablets have dropped from $99 and $149 respectively and can be found immediately at Wal-Mart stores. The two Android tablets offer native support for Google Play.
The Sero 7 LT was previously available for $99 and features a 7-inch 1024 x 600 resolution display, a 1.6GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of memory and 4GB of storage, while there are connections for micro USB and micro HDMI.
The device runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
The Sero 7 Pro has a 1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor, double the memory (8GB) and an improved 7-inch 1280 x 800 resolution display.
The Android tablet also runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, sports dual-facing cameras (5MP on the [...]
Two months on from announcing the SlateBook x2 and HP is now listing the 10-inch convertible Android tablet on its sales website.
HP has since confirmed that the device is now available and is shipping to online customers, although the official launch date of August 2013 would suggest that retail stores may have to wait a week for the Android tablet to arrive.
The SlateBook x2 costs $479.99 including a keyboard dock, and boasts some impressive specifications.
The slate has a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 resolution display, a quad-core Tegra 4 processor, a 16GB solid-state drive and 2GB of system memory. It runs the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
But Nvidia, a chip supplier to Windows RT makers (including the Tegra 3 chip used in Microsoft’s Surface RT) says it’s committed to the platform long term and is optimistic about its future.
“Surface RT is the very beginning of a long process and it’s the first shot in a changing landscape,” Rene Haas, VP of computing products at Nvidia, told Computerworld.
He also said Nvidia is doing more than talking up RT tablets. Nvidia employees use Surface RT tablets running Windows 8.1 that include Microsoft Outlook and offers VPN improvements.
“Outlook in 8.1 is a big, big deal for us, and it’s not a baby version [...]
The new tablets are called the Excite Pure, Excite Pro and Excite Write and share the same core design – a 10-inch screen, a plastic chassis and the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
There are bigger differences when it comes to the price and other specs, however. The $299 Excite Pure is Toshiba's attempt at a budget Android tablet and has Nvidia’s Tegra 3 system-on-chip, a 1280 x 800 resolution display (with Gorilla Glass 1) and 16GB of storage.
The premium Excite Pro tablet is due to arrive next month for $499, but boasts some impressive specs, including the Tegra 4 chip, 32GB of storage, an 8MB rear camera, Harman Kardon sound and a 2560 [...]
German technology site Technofokus was first to uncover Toshiba's monstrous 13.3 inch AT330 tablet, which features Nvidia's quad-coore Tegra 3 CPU, a 5MP rear camera, and a 1.3MP front-facing camera, as well as slots for SIM, full-size SD cards, and an HDMI port.
The real surprise, however, is that the Ice Cream Sandwich tablet also features a TV tuner and an retractable TV antenna that slides out of the device.
Toshiba has yet to release pricing for the new tablet.
The newspaper claims that the tablet will run Nvidia’s Tegra 3 processor and will debut at the show, alongside two new Android smartphones from HTC.
The newspaper even claims that the tablet will be HTC’s only new Android tablet for 2012, suggesting that HTC could be ready to switch to machines running Windows 8.
HTC launched its first tablet, the 7-inch Flyer, at last year’s MWC exhibition. Taiwanese rival Asus has already announced its own first quad-core tablet, the Transformer Prime, which is due to launch next month.
