NVIDIA Tegra NOTE 7: Complete Tablet Platform, Powered by Tegra 4

NVIDIA® Tegra NOTE™ is a complete tablet platform, designed by NVIDIA® and brought to market by our partners. It embodies the NVIDIA brand – from our hardware and software (right down to over-the-air "OTA" OS updates), to our industrial design, accessories and network of partners in game development.

Since NVIDIA owns and maintains the platform, OTA updates can be rolled out as needed to address developer issues and concerns. This is a huge step forward for the developer community. NVIDIA® Tegra NOTE™ is the new standard for Android developers.
