Xolo once again partnered with Nvidia to launch the Tegra 4 chipset equipped Play Tegra Note tablet in India. The company has aggressively priced the tablet for Rs 17,999 to compete against the likes of Google Nexus 7 (2013 edition), Asus FonePad and Samsung Note series tablets.

To begin with the design, the Play Tegra Note tablet has been made up of plastic as well as rubberized finished grainy textured material used on the back panel. The tablet is comfortable to hold, offers good grip for a tablet and looks a bit masculine, but isn t really sturdy.

It has a 7-inch IPS display with 1,280×800 pixels resolution, which offers nice visuals and good viewing angles. The touch interface as well as response is smooth. The display though attracts a lot of smudges which can be a little annoying.

It is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 4 Cortex A15 chipset with quad-core and an additional fifth core for better battery efficiency, and is coupled with a 72-core GeForce GPU which seems promising and powerful for a smooth graphic centric gaming experience. The tablet comes with 16GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 32GB using a microSD card.

The tablet houses a double-sided Nvidia DirectStylus technology based stylus, which is placed on the lower side of the tab. DirectStylus comes with double operational tips, which can be used for performing different functions on the tablet. The tablet also comes pre-loaded with Tegra Draw and Write apps and features some interesting stylus friendly software features which enhances its usability and offer a better user experience. So for instance, the tablet automatically activated stylus-related apps the moment we took the stylus out of its port, and also allows switching off regular touch inputs while using the stylus. During the short time we used it; the stylus was accurate and overall worked quite well.

It houses a 5-megapixel rear camera with auto focus, and a VGA front facing camera. The company has added some camera centric apps like Camera Awesome app, which can be used for editing images. Considering that the lighting conditions at the event were not apt to test the camera, we will keep our opinions on the camera for later.

The Play Tegra Note Tablet comes with the PureAudio technology and features stereo speakers on either side, which did not really add much to the overall sound experience in the noisy environment at the event. Connectivity-wise, besides supporting Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3G, the tablet also comes with HDMI output and can be paired with a third-party game controller.

The interesting bit is that the tablet runs on stock Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and will receive OTA updates pushed by Nvidia. Also, the tablet is a pure gaming delight and features Nvidia s Tegra Zone app store which offers a bouquet of games for the gaming enthusiasts.

For this price, the tablet will be up against the Google Nexus 7 tablet which also comes with a 7-inch display, but runs on the latest Android version. Others in the competition include Asus FonePad and Samsung Note series tablets. Stay tuned as we put the device though its paces in our extensive review.
