wantatabasap, 17 Feb 2014hi,
you yourself commend the tab for performance and than recommend a 5k tab.
you might ass... moreHi, You are quite correct in the fact that a sim slot is very preferable to those on the go for accessing internet. nVidia made a niche product in Tegra Note. Kudos to them for keeping the price low in relation to the astounding hardware packed inside (including the stylus). In order to cut cost they had to forego a few features like screen resolution, RAM and yes, sim slot. The tab has been created to be mainly a gaming device, in which they succeeded magnificently. This is one of the most powerful tablets in the world with a few compromises.
So, while I also feel the need for a sim slot, I know that the target audience is different than normal tab users. As far as the gaming performance goes, nothing even comes close to this tab. I am thinking of buying this in a couple of months (i will be mainly using it for reading ebooks while my son will be using it for games).
Hi everyone, Does this device really have an IR (Infra-Red) port?... I doubt it, but Great! if it does. GSM Arena says it does... but it is not mentioned in the Tegra Note 4 specifications of other websites. I have yet to aquire this beast.
NTeg, 17 Feb 2014Hi all, I did leave a small bomb for discussions didn't I. Yes I agree... the wish list can go... moreA little addition - The reviews say ... you will not miss the 2GB Ram... it is quite adequate even for the most demanding of games.
Hi all, I did leave a small bomb for discussions didn't I. Yes I agree... the wish list can go on... 2GB Ram, better display (like Nexus 2013), sharper, better camera, 32GB on-board storage, Android 4.4, Sim / 3G slot with the power of Tegra 4.... Now, wouldn't that be the Tab of dreams. While it is a highly possible dream, I doubt that it can come at the current price point.... at least for now. I still think it is a great tablet and I have to wait a few more days for mine to arrive.

you yourself commend the tab for performance and than recommend a 5k tab.
you might assume I need a tab for calling. No, I don`t but I would like a sim slot for net connectivity,other wise it is pricey for me,for my needs.
Launching a prodcut with just wi-fi connectivity in a country like India is not great plan, unless u release a product like nexus7. Glad they included a MicroSD card.
AnupamC, 13 Feb 2014Most of the Indians do not go into details as to what makes a tablet tick. For most of them p... moreDisagree with your comment.
Indians..most of them who use a hi-end phone or tab do go for specs. It is atleast a 2 yr investment for any middle class person. And will look for a decent price slab.
people do buy 5k tabs according to their needs and budget, but most save money to buy such things. so yes..still pricey..
NTeg, 31 Jan 2014Hi! one can easily use a USB 3G dongle for the Wifi on the go needs (for commuting etc). But I... morethanks NTeg for your reply.
Yes, with the slot in the tab body it eliminates a need to carry a dongle along with it. But I personally don`t want calling facilities(others might)..
I want to surf the web on the go, and India doesn`t have any free wi-fi spots available except for CCD or McDonalds..
The tab is a wonderful one, screen is ok for me, not big on taking great pics with tablets.. So it does work for me.. as mentioned by Anupam, 2 gb ram would just nail it for me as the tab to buy..even without the sim slot.
AnupamC, 13 Feb 2014"Pricing is on the higher side" - are you kidding? There is no tablet that comes ev... morebuddy...
you do know that the tablet would be used for things other than gaming and movies.
and you also know, that India isn`t a place with wi-fi options available. with a sim slot, it is easy to surf net.
And yes without that, pricing is higher. You might speak with a techie `s perspective, but i am speaking with a common man perspective, that wants a sim slot and decent performance.
and for your 5k tab comment, even u know u r kidding..
NTeg, 14 Feb 2014For me... I like the fact that it is an NVidia product with a mind-blowing performance even wh... moreVery true. It is the same for me too. I will wait one or two more months to see if nVidia brings out a Tegra Note with 2 GB RAM alongwith some updated features. If not, then I will get myself one of these too.
For me... I like the fact that it is an NVidia product with a mind-blowing performance even when compared to the newer 2014 products. The CPU and GPU does the job. Expandable memory and Stylus has added to the charm. You know I am the artistic type and love a stylus. I have ordered an EVGA Tegra Note 7 which should be arriving around the last week of Feb. The two share the same hardware features. I am excited. I do care about the display, but I think this should suffice. I am for performance and love things to be speedy.

For most of them price is the main consideration. They think that if they can get a tablet for 5000/- why to go for a Rs. 15,999/- tablet. In fact they will also get sim enabled voice calling tablet for 5000/-.
Wp8eater, 08 Feb 2014How rubbish is the build quality? Is the back and screen put together well?Let me put it this way. It has a very nice finish (that is to say that it does not look cheap), but the build quality leaves something to be desired. On flexing it, produces a slight creaking sound.

There is no tablet that comes even close to it in performance. It even outperforms Snapdragon 800. If you want tablet with sim, you can get it for 5000/-. But this is is an nVidia product with 4+1 CPU cores and a 72-core GeForce GPU.

But I guess it is a bit cumbersome and would better if it was within the tablet body. I guess having a 3G dongle means one can also use it as a mobile device for talks etc. too.
I wished to know whether you can use a 3g dongle with this tab for OTG internet
shyam, 12 Jan 2014depends.....if your priority is watching videos or browsing...nexus is the way to go
but if i... moreI get that nexus has an awesome screen and specs, but without a 2g option, how are you supposed to browse while commuting?
Unless you root your tab and/or install a 3rd party app for 3g dongle.
If only nexus had given a microSD option with a sim slot, this would have been the ipad killer in India.
NTeg, 20 Jan 2014So little adoption by Indians..... I thought this was a gem of tablet with it's super speedy C... morehi,
the problem with the tab is that it does not have a sim slot. In India, public wi-fi is not available easily. therefore an option of internet on the go is a must. using a sim card to access 2g/3g networks.
Also the pricing is on a higher side,at 15,999 INR.
It is a big deal to invest so much money, hence we have to think many times.
Hence the less love for this tab.
So little adoption by Indians..... I thought this was a gem of tablet with it's super speedy CPU and GPU (and mind-you... no benchmark cheating on Nvidia's part)... but why is the adoption so slow and less... I guess Indian's prefer the foreign made brands. Guys we need personal opinions and feedback!!!
