XOLO has officially launched the Play Tegra Note in India for a MRP of Rs 17,999. The tablet will be immediately available on online stores as well as in retail channels starting today. This is India’s first tablet that’s based on Nvidia’s latest Tegra 4 chipset and also marks the lunch of Nvidia’s Tegra Note platform. In India, XOLO will be manufacturing and selling the Play, that’s built very closely along the lines of Nvidia’s reference design. We’ve already brought you an exclusive unboxing of the XOLO Play Tegra Note and will be ready with the full review shortly.
In the meantime, here are some of the highlights of the new tablet. The Play Tegra Note is powered by a 1.8GHz Nvidia Tegra 4 Cortex A15 processor. The site hasn’t mentioned which version of Android it will run. The tablet is also known to come bundled with a slide cover that flips and bends to act like a kickstand, and can be set up in three distinct positions.
Finally, a real challenger to the Nexus 7
Take a quick look at some of its specifications:
- 7-inch IPS display with 1280 x 800 pixels of resolution
- Bluetooth v4.0
- 5-megapixel rear camera, 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera
- 16GB onboard storage, expandable via microSD card slot
One of the key highlights of Nvidia’s Tegra Note platform is the DirectStylus technology that can significantly enhance passive stylus performance. So, one can expect a responsive stylus and a slew of apps to take advantage of it. Reportedly, even the top portion of the stylus is touch sensitive and can be used as a brush, and also acts as an eraser when aligned in line with the screen. Removing the DirectStylus from its holding compartment activates the stylus-related apps.
