Nvidia Tegra Tab Specs Leaked via FCC Documents

The last couple of weeks have been rife with rumors of an Nvidia tablet powered by Tegra 4. Most recently, the device showed up in photos leaked by Taiwan's version of the FCC. Less than a week later, the tablet is showing up at the FCC for real.


The FFC filing reveals specs for a device labeled Tegra TAB as well as photos of the 7-inch tablet and a user manual. The user manual reveals that the Tegra TAB, available in Basic and Premium models, will run Android Jelly Bean as its operating system. The premium model will have a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, microSD slot and stylus, features which won't be present on the basic model. Premium specs aside, you're looking at a front-facing camera, support for micro HDMI, WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, a micro USB port for charging, a 7-inch 1280 x 800 IPS display, and a 3200 or 4100 mAh battery powering the whole show.


These specs match up with previously discussed specifications which includes a 5-megapixel camera, a front-facing camera on the front, micro USB port, a micro HDMI port, and support for microSD TransFlash memory cards. No word on a release date or pricing, and Nvidia didn't have the tablet on show at IFA in Berlin. It'ss possible Nvidia still wants to get this device to market in time for the holiday shopping season, in which case we should see an announcement in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

    Am I the only one who feels like Android is a step in the wrong direction? It's a PHONE OS. It simply cannot do what Windows does (or even Apple OS for that matter) as far as what I personally want from a device in terms of performance capability and security.

    nVidia is not competing with a market, they're buying into it. With all of the AMAZING things they can do with graphics, it surprises me that they're willing to build on a platform that is 10 years in the past.

    The forward-firing speakers are literally the only thing I care much about in this device. Otherwise it's not really any better (or worse) than other tablets you can already get. Nvida is going to need some mega-marketing or some uber-competitive pricing for this to gain much traction, since the tablet market is already pretty competitive and chock full of device options.

    this better be $150 for it to even matter.
