NVIDIA sent along word this morning that they have improved the Tegra Note 7 with a new software OTA update.  Keys to the update are that it adds the promised always-on HDR photography (AOHDR), live video stabilization and an operating system update to Android 4.3. 

We’ve enhanced the Tegra NOTE stylus experience, adding support for left-handed users and improvements in overall response. We’ve also added a DirectStylus help option under the device setting’s menu, a stylus removal and insert notification on the notification bar, and given users the ability to capture the notification bar with full-screen capture.

In addition to these new features, Tegra NOTE 7′s camera gets always-on high-dynamic range (AOHDR) capability, which provides more lifelike images across a range of lighting conditions. AOHDR utilizes Tegra 4’s processing power and Chimera computational photography architecture. We’ve also added video stabilization for shake-free video, in addition to tuning and optimizations to improve camera performance under certain lighting conditions.

From an OS perspective, Tegra Note 7 now sports the Android 4.3 Operating System.

Finally, in addition to security and bug fixes, we’ve added the ability to transfer app and data files from internal memory to an external microSD card.

If you own a Tegra Note 7 you will be pushed the update soon or you can force an update in your settings menu.

Wow...glad I saw the review. I know what tablet to get now.
Nvidia Tegra 4 fantastic stylus and a company that cares by pushing out improvements.
1200X800 is plenty for that size and games will run better and battery life will improve vs higher resolutions.

Great, now get an ARMver8 CPU(quad core)/GPU "APU" type chip with Maxwell graphics, 10+ inch high DPI screen and a full linux distro! Something tuned for graphics/drawing with a high resolution graphics art stylus, 4GB ram, and a larger than 64 GB Real flash drive. Green is Nvidia's color and Mint is the Linux distro that could color match this tablet with a full OS, for some CPU/GPU accelerated graphics goodness. With the average graphics tablet running $800.00 to $1200.00, a graphics tablet priced right would sell.

would be nice if they made a 10 inch version. 7 is just a bit to small for me.

I just got my Tegra Note a few days ago and have enjoyed it so far. I used to have a 10" ASUS tablet which I enjoyed but having something smaller is very nice for how much lighter and easier it is to hold.

I just tried updating but its not working for me yet :( Hopefully it will come through tomorrow.

I'd love to get this little tablet but I can't justify getting this over the newer Nexus 7. I'd really like to get this for it's front facing stereo speakers, stylus and its tegra processor but the new Nexus's higher resolution screen is so sexy plus brand new OS's available ASAP. Maybe I'll wait for the second iteration..... If there is another one.
