Nvidia's Tegra Note 7 is an affordable Android tablet for business users who want stylus support. With a 7-inch display and a compact design, it's one of the smaller stylus-equipped tablets available. The Tegra Note 7 lacks some of the features found in Samsung's stylus-equipped, pricey Galaxy Note 8 tablet, such as handwriting recognition software. And it can't quite match up to Google's own Nexus 7, which boasts better battery life and a sharper display. But at $199, Nvidia's tablet offers plenty of bang for your buck. Check out a full review of the Tegra Note 7 at our sister site Laptop Mag, then read on for three features that make it ready for work.
Sure, you can buy a capacitive stylus for almost any tablet, but only a handful of slates offer stylus support out of the box. Nvidia's Tegra Note 7 comes with a stylus that slides into a slot at the top right corner of the tablet.That's good for business users who want to take notes, or draw a chart or diagram for inclusion in a business presentation. When you pull the stylus from its holster, it prompts you to select from one of several preinstalled note-taking or drawing apps. You can customize this feature so that pulling out the stylus launches any app you choose. Additional functionality includes the ability to draw a line around any portion of your tablet's screen to take a quick screenshot of just that area.
Affordable price point
Business users on a budget will appreciate the Tegra Note 7's low price point of $199. Its closest competitor, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, is a slightly larger stylus-equipped tablet that retails for $299. Meanwhile, Google's $229 Nexus 7 tablet features a better display than the Tegra Note 7, but lacks a stylus.
Nvidia's Tegra Note 7 is no slouch when it comes to performance. It packs Nvidia's Tegra 4 processor with 1GB of RAM, so business users can expect speedy performance when running apps and performing daily productivity tasks.
