NVIDIA is rumored to be developing its own 7-inch tablet. We’ve already seen leaked photos and a benchmark for the Tegra 4-powered slate, and now the device has shown up in a filing from Taiwan’s National Communications Commission. The document, which was first spotted by Japanese site Blog of Mobile describes a Tegra Tab P1640 device, which offers Bluetooth and Wi-Fi but no cellular connection.
The NCC filing doesn’t reveal much more, though it includes two new photos of the rumored NVIDIA tablet next to what looks like a pair of metric rulers. Based on previous leaks, the Tegra Tab is expected to feature a 7-inch display with a 1280 x 768 resolution, a 1.8GHz Tegra 4 CPU, a 5-megapixel rear camera and Android 4.2.2. The device may also come with a stylus, which could put it as the closest competitor to Samsung’s Galaxy Note tablets.
It’s still unclear if the Tegra Tab is headed for the consumer market or is simply another reference for hardware designers. If the device does hit stores it will likely be geared towards gamers and may serve as a companion to the NVIDIA Shield. Rumor has it the company will officially unveil the new tablet tomorrow at IFA, so we may know the answer very shortly.
