NVIDIA just announced the newest member of the Tegra NOTE 7 tablet platform, the Tegra NOTE 7 LTE. Tegra NOTE 7 LTE takes NVIDIA's i500 LTE modem and adds it to the Tegra NOTE 7 family for LTE and HSPA+ connectivity that can operate on popular carriers worldwide. Here's more info:
The Tegra NOTE 7 LTE's worldwide connectivity is provided by our cellular LTE modem chipset, the fifth-gen NVIDIA i500 processor. i500 leverages a unique software-defined radio technology - meaning it can deliver new capabilities via software without requiring an entirely new chipset. Another big plus is higher efficiency - it's only 40 percent the size of conventional modems but has 4x the processing capability of its predecessor.
The entire Tegra NOTE 7 family also received an over-the-air update that upgraded the operating system to Android 4.4.2 (Kit Kat), which includes support for Gamepad Mapper. Introduced first for our SHIELD portable gaming and entertainment device, Gamepad Mapper turns touch-based Android games into ones that can be enjoyed with the physical controls of a Bluetooth controller.
