    While T4 isn't a POnot-respectable, it's also not amounting to all the hype Nvidia put out before its (oft-delayed) release. They seem to be having to do a lot of leg-work to get device-acceptance when qualcomm chips have been in wide use for so many devices already.

    Regardless, seems to be an acceptable price (~$199) for a spec'd device. I personally don't care about super high-resolution screens, especially at the 7" form-factor I think 1280x800 is great, so this device is appealing. If reviews of quality and durability pan out it's a great alternative to a 2013 nexus 7.

    ^you have a point ther teh_chem

    however, it is because people compare this device against the nexus 7 2013 (which has dropped to $199 on many sites), that is giving the Tegra tab trouble:

    pros for Tegra Note:
    1. arguably more powerful SoC for android gaming
    2. microSD storage

    Pros for 2013 Nexus 7:
    1. full HD display
    2. it's a nexus device so it gets stock android treatment (and updates)
    3. 2GB of memory

    at the end of the day, the Tegra Note 7 should be only attractive to people who really want a microSD slot (which isn't a small market I admit)
