The EVGA Tegra Note 7 is stylus action in a low-priced package

Tablets
Tegra Note 7 is a tablet platform designed by Nvidia and released through its partners. It includes a Tegra 4 processor, costs $200 for a 16 gigabytes of storage, and the first partner that take the jump is EVGA, a noted seller of Nvidia GeForce graphics cards. The Note 7 comes with a stylus and even its own pocket for the pen. There are typical connections like the headphone jack, micro HDMI and micro USB, as well as a 5 megapixel back camera and a VGA front camera. There's also a micro SD slot on the right edge for storage expansion. At the ends of the side vessels are two full speakers and a subwoofer on the bottom vertical edge. The back has this nice-feeling texture on it, which works for me since I'm kind of a sucker for that kind of thing. There's also this tablet-linked groove here. It's here so you can insert the included cover. And that's fine if you're always using the cover. However, if that cover's lost or broken, or you just don't wanna use it, then the groove becomes this really distracting and uncomfortable part of the tablet you can't really do anything about. The back has also been magnetized so that the cover can actually stick to and prop the tablet up. The tablet is pretty well integrated. When you first remove it, it prompts you with a choice of launching 2 different stylus-compatible apps. Drawing with the stylus seems to be pretty fast, responsive, and accurate; all that you want with a stylus. However, I still need to spend some time with it to truly get a feel for how it works. The back camera takes decent shots but includes some useful bells and whistles like multi-shot load and an HDR or high dynamic range load. The Note 7 has a screen resolution of 1280x800. That's slow by today's standard, and not surprisingly, it's not as sharp as the Nexus 7's or Kindle Fire HDX 7's screens. Games performance is up there with the Nvidia Shield, which is impressive, given that this is a $200 tablet. The Tegra Note 7 offers a lot for $200. It's definitely the cheapest stylus tablet that I know of, for sure. It also has great games performance and the stylus aspect seemed to be pretty well integrated. But check out my full review at CNET.com for more information and my final recommendation. I'm Eric Franklin, and this has been a first look at the EVGA Tegra Note 7.
