Armed with the Tegra 4 processor, the Tegra Note 7 runs on the Android 4.4.2 KitKat platform, and includes a stylus. Now, it's additionally available with LTE and HSPA+ mobile connectivity, and can operate on various carriers across the world. Users can now access to the web, check maps, and play videos anywhere, by purchasing a minimum data plan from their carriers.

NVIDIA's cellular LTE modem chipset, its fifth-gen i500 processor, leverages a unique software-defined radio technology, delivering new capabilities via software without requiring an entirely new chipset. Also, it's only 40% the size of conventional models but owns four times the processing capability of its predecessor.

The entire Tegra Note 7 family also received an over-the-air update that enhanced the OS to Android 4.4.2 KitKat, which includes support for Gamepad Mapper. Introduced previously for NVIDIA's Shield portable gaming and entertainment device, Gamepad Mapper turns touch-based Android games into ones that can be enjoyed with physical controls of a Bluetooth controller.
