Lots of tablets coming

Nvidia claims
Jolly Green giant boss, Nvidia CEOs Jen-Hsun Huang claims that Tablets are not a fad and that a flood of Android tablets are on the way. He repeated that the new wave of Tablets have to be "truly remarkable" in order to compete with the iPad and claimed that  notebooks may suffer.

Nvidia reported earnings today for its most recent quarter, ending October 31.  Its profit slipped to $84.9 millionfrom $107.6 million in the year-earlier quarter. But earnings were up  from this year's previous quarter, when the company posted a loss of $141.0 million. Revenue was down to $843.9 million from $903.2 million reported a year ago.

Nvidia is hoping to do well out of android. Its Tegra processor is expected to appear in a number of Android tablets. However these have been delayed by a "few months" because Nvidia, Google, and tablet manufacturers want to make sure they get it right out of the gate in order to compete effectively against Apple's iPad.

He said that the Samsung Galaxy Tab was a tablet that uses a phone operating system on a large display. A tablet is not a large phone. Huang said that upcoming tablets would use the dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor which would provide higher performance and much, much better multitasking and better graphics. This will lead to a different experience than the iPad, Huang thinks.
