Awkward name hides the NVIDIA Tegra Note, available for £179.99 with pre-orders available November 7

A couple of months back NVIDIA announced the Tegra Note tablet platform, a reference for Tegra 4 tablets to be sold through global partners and with updates handled by NVIDIA themselves. The UK has now seen the device for the first time, and will be sold from November 15 by the Dixons Group of stores, primarily Currys and PCWorld, and will cost a respectible £179.99. 

For that, you're getting a Tegra 4 SoC under the hood, with a 1280x800 display, 5MP rear camera, 16GB of on-board storage and plain old vanilla Android, which Dixons is currently listing as Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. And, as the Note name implies, this thing comes with a stylus with bundled applications. 

This could be a great gift with the holiday season coming up, or, you know, a gift to yourself, and at a price which puts it right in there with the Amazon Kindle Fire HD and the Google Nexus 7. This look like a tablet you could get behind?

Why not? Doesn't look bad. Specs, price all in line and it comes with a stylus which I love on my note..

I'm dead against it. People forget that traders need access to Diiiiixons. They do say it'll help people in wheeeeeelchairs.

It's the same price as the Nexus 7 (2013).... It'll probably sell poorly. In stores the poor screen quality will turn off a lot of people. Many geeks will also be turned off because of the 1GB RAM limitation. The pen is a nice addon....

Now if only the US manufactures (i'm looking at you EVGA & PNY) would stop dragging their feet and actually announce and release it here.

Why wouldn't I be? it's vastly superior to the Nexus 7 in basically every spec, the Tegra 4 blows the Snapdragon 4 pro out of the water, it has expandable memory (32GB simply isn't enough for me), it has a stylus pen, proper front facing speakers instead of the stupid rear facing speakers, and it's cheaper to boot. Really the only spot it does beat the nexus 7 is screen resolution and honestly screen res at this point has become a marketing gimmick to con foolish people out of their money, even many years ago when HD TV's first came out studies showed you really needed around a 40" tv for the human eye to even notice the difference between 720p and 1080p, I know I couldn't notice the res difference between my old Note 1's 1280x800 and my Optimus G pro's 1920x1080 display. The only thing that would have made the Tegra Note even better would have been an 8" screen instead of the 7", aside from that it's pretty much the perfect tablet imo, it has all the features I want and doesn't waste money on the features I don't care so much about.

This looks like a really good 10 inch tablet. Or 8 inch tablet. Or however big it is since that isn't covered. Guess I'll hit up the source link since that's a somewhat important detail that was left out.

The bezels really don't seem that big. It's only a 7" tablet, if I recall, so that would make the bezels right about normal.
