Nvidia Tegra Note TabletOriginally demoed a month ago at Computex 2013, the Tegra will go beyond their Project KAI Tegra 3 design. The Tegra Note tablet will have both original hardware and a complete operating system from the company, making it a new kind of high performance device without the price tag.

Last year the Nexus 7 became one of the most popular Android tablets released, and it remains popular to this day. NVIDIA was at least partially responsible for that success, thanks to their work on developing affordable high-tech hardware and software components used on the device. But now they are releasing their own Tegra Note, which further improves on the concept.
