Earlier this week, Vishal Sehgal, Co-founder and Director, Lava International unveiled the first tablet based on the Tegra Note platform called the Xolo Play Tegra Note. Now, Gizmodo India reports that the tablet will be priced around Rs 16,999. The tablet is expected to officially be made available in October.
One of its key highlights is the DirectStylus technology that can significantly enhance passive stylus performance. So, one can expect a responsive stylus and a slew of apps to take advantage of it. For example, even the top portion of the stylus is touch sensitive and can be used as a brush, and also acts as an eraser when aligned in line with the screen. Removing the DirectStylus from its holding compartment activates the stylus-related apps.
XOLO Play Tegra Note is built on the Tegra Note 7 reference design
