Tegra Note 7 gets Android 4.4.2

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Just in time for MWC 2014

The Advent Vega Tegra Note 7 tablet has just got a 460 MB Android 4.4.2 update.

The update should improve performance and stability and we have to admit that it’s really nice to work on this speedy 7-incher. It works really nice, although people just don’t like the fact it not a 1080p device. However the tiny screen is quite nice even in 1280x800. Kit Kat 4.4.2 is currently the latest version of Android, and only a handful of devices have an official release, Tegra Note 7 included. In addition the OTA 2 update includes a tweaked gamepad mapper feature and other optimizations and fixes.

Nvidia did a good job adding the latest Android to its devices, and this has been one of the main complains about most Android tablets and phones out there. It just takes way too long to get the latest version of Android such as Android 4.4.2 to these devices, but the process is somewhat smoother when it comes to tablets, as vendors don’t have to worry about carriers.

The latest android 4.4.2 Kit Kat is out since December 9th so it did take Nvidia quite a while to get it ready, but compared it some other manufactures it is still pretty good. The latest Android version for non-Nexus or Google Play tablets in this price range is usually 4.2 or lower.

Today is a big day for Nvidia and the rest of the mobile phone and tablet industry as Mobile World congress kicks off in Barcelona and we expect to see some new cool things, especially phones based on the mid-range Tegra 4i LTE capable chip and at least some demo Tegra K1 devices, if not the retail ones.
