When the Nexus 7 2013 was launched, Google decided to go with a Qualcomm processor instead of sticking with NVIDIA’s Tegra platform. Whether it was a mistake or not is a discussion for another day, but NVIDIA had to do something to promote its Tegra 4 processor for various devices. Part of that effort manifested itself as the NVIDIA SHIELD, but where to go next?

It looks like NVIDIA is trying its hand at making a tablet, to be simply called the Tegra Tab. It definitely has an interesting aesthetic to it, it is a rugged tablet, but the interesting thing about it is the NVIDIA technology that went into it.

Since this is an NVIDIA in-house product, they’re using a 1.8GHz Tegra 4 processor (of course). This is paired with 2GB of RAM, a 7-inch 128 0 x768 display, what looks like front-facing speakers and dual cameras. However, it also comes with a stylus. This is a demonstration of DirectStylus, their stylus technology that NVIDIA has been demonstrating for a while now.

Is the company trying to show what can be done with NVIDIA technology or trying to sell a product for profit? Considering the inclusion of the stylus, I can’t help but feel that it’s the latter. With a not-so-high-end display and a design that doesn’t seem very refined, this could be NVIDIA’s way of trying to convince manufacturers to use the Tegra 4. We’ll find out eventually. Would you buy this tablet?
