Picked up my LTE model last week, ordered a poetic case off amazon for it just now. I have the controller and cover for it, but cover for nothing to protect back side. After its all set up and loaded, it rocks, 64gb SD card and it's nearly full already.
Nvidia games are a cut above, blood people away when they what this tablet can do, for something they never heard of before lol.
rohanparikh92, 05 Nov 2014If I buy the LTE version from U.S .will it work in india with Sim cards from india ?I have LTE version from us it works in India but voice call is not supported. U can't even have watsapp. There is a bigger isse that airtel gives 4g at 2300 band and this tablet does not support 2300 band. If u r not a rich game wait till international version with voice call comes
mbrilyan, 26 Nov 2014how could I get this item in Indonesia?Well, I got mine off eBay from Germany, two weeks old :) There are always options if you really want something, you know, and you're willing to take the risk. I'm from Bulgaria btw.
Yeah! Android 5.0 Lollipop coming up for this tablet...
If I buy the LTE version from U.S .will it work in india with Sim cards from india ?
Nvidia's website clearly tells us that 2g 3g and 4g facilities are available but then voice calling is not available. this is because of google's decision to remove the dialler app from the software. Moreover google wants to promote the use of its app called 'Hangouts'. I really wish they bring it back in lollipop.

thepi, 29 Oct 2014I got it couple of days ago and there are no options of making or receiving gsm voice calls. T... moreHeheh that's the main reason you need a phablet :)
Well, I want voice calls too. Let's see if we get them with the Lollipop update (for the record, I haven't received mine yet so I don't know if it has voice calls or not).
I got it couple of days ago and there are no options of making or receiving gsm voice calls. The OS is missing a dialer component and custom dialers give error - voice dialing not supported. It came with a factory inserted SIM card from AT&T, though.
NVIDIA support says there is no voice version on the market.
I think all LTE tablets with DATA ONLY should emphasize that. It's an unnecessary flaw for otherwise great tablet.
I'm taking mine back, because gsm voice calling is one of the main reasons, I need a tablet.
Omar, 26 Oct 2014Yes u didnt see it says that this tablet have a sim card than that means u can callNot exactly. From Nvidia site FAQs:

There is a version of the international SKU that supports voice on compatible networks, available for purchase in select regions.
They don't list the regions though...
Jay, 04 Oct 2014can this tablet make a phone call ?Yes u didnt see it says that this tablet have a sim card than that means u can call
Got this one instead of Nexus 9. I believe I'll be happier in the long term. Just waiting for it to arrive. For me this is the best and well-thought out tablet on the market at the moment, has everything I need and more, minus the hype. With an incredibly low price even! I just wish Nvidia posted the SKUs where voice calls are enabled or allow us to enable them so I could ditch the phone... A bit worried about stepping down 2 inches from my current Xoom, but hey! Sometimes loss could be gain, for what I know.
