Nvidia Tegra tablet passes FCC tests, two models might launch
- Pictures of the 7" Nvidia (NVDA +1.6%) tablet show both a 3,200 mAh and a 4,100 mAh battery. Also, an HDMI port is listed as a feature for a "premium" model.
- The premium model will also have a stylus and built-in apps that can make use of it, as well as a 5MP rear camera with HDR support (likely made possible by the Chimera imaging tech found in Nvidia's Tegra 4 CPU).
- Images suggest the tablets could be branded under the Tegra Note name. They'll enter a pretty crowded Android tablet market.
- The announcement comes a week after Nvidia announced a needed high-profile Tegra 4 smartphone win: Xiaomi is using the Tegra 4 in a version of its flagship Mi3 Android phone to be sold by China Mobile for use on its TD-SCDMA 3G network. China Unicom and Telecom will sell Mi3 models using Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 CPU.
