Computex 2009: Nvidia means business

 

While Computex has seen aplenty of ION-based devices, it seems like Nvidia plans to do the same push with Tegra, as this platform promises a lot. Unfortunately, the promises stretch into the past quite a bit, but better late than never.

Furthermore, Tegra based devices will have their own advantages, amongst them the latest one that it will offer Adobe Flash acceleration on netbooks. However, you won't be able to run XP on them, you're stuck with CE or Android.

Almost all Tegra devices are said to come at a pricepoint of around $200 and even less when they arrive, which is something to look forward to. Here are a couple of shots of the Tegra devices parading on Computex:

Mobinnova’s élan, a 8.9’’ Tegra powered netbook weighing only two pounds but capable of churning out 720p. Being Tegra based, it has Flash video hardware acceleration, WiFi, 3G, and can play 720p from 5-10 hours on a single charge. We loved the way the ports are nicely hidden but easy to reach when you need them, and the on/off key is a nice touch as well.

We’re all for technology, but we’ve got a strange feeling that someone’s color-blind child designed Mabo, the Tegra-powered tablet we see on the picture here. The renders we’ve seen look sleek, as is the case with renders, and don’t even get us started on the choice of colors. So much for designer prowess, as looks-wise the entire device simply reeks. Try again?

Pegatron has also been showcasing its Tegra champ, the Vivid.
