The world's fastest 7-inch tablet, the NVIDIA Tegra Note 7, has just been updated with NVIDIA's i500 LTE modem. This provides the tablet with the high-end speeds of LTE, but continues its great starting price of just $199.




NVIDIA's Tegra Note 7 tablet includes NVIDIA's Tegra 4 SoC, a stylus, Android 4.4.2 (KitKat), and now, LTE and HSPA+ support. The new NVIDIA i500 processor the company has installed into its 7-inch slate uses a software-defined radio technology, meaning it can provide consumers with new features through software updates.


Another benefit of the NVIDIA i500 processor is that it's just 40% of the size of a traditional modem, but features 4x the capability of its predecessor. The normal Tegra Note 7 starts at $199, while the LTE-powered model will cost $100 more at $299, and will start selling across the world in certain markets in Q2 2014.
