Lots of tablets coming

Written by Nick Farell

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.

They can wait a few extra months if they "want to make sure they get it right". The problem is that the other players in the market are not trying to get it right. They are ready. Nvidia is losing ground here.

Losing ground? Nvidias Tegra 2 is far superior to anything other companies have to offer. Therefore it's nice to see that they are actually taking their time, rather than just releasing another bug infested & expensive Apple Ipad clone. I look foward to a quality product that will completely trounce Apple's Ipad and at half the price. :).

no not really... cpu wise yes, for now but ti/samsung/qualcomm etc. will have their own dual core arm 9s before q1 next year. gpu wise they are about the same... i read on phandroid that the one samsung used in the galaxy phones was about the same power. IIRC, JHH said that tegra 3 was already taped out and they were working on tegra 4. i think tegra 3 will be out by q2/q3 next year for 28nm

You mind pointing out any "currently available" Android tablet that has Tegra 2 and that it doesn't suck? Also I'm in the US so I don't smoke any overseas grass.

1. "doesnt suck" is subjective
2. the US is not the center of the universe as you mihght believe
3. Google is your friend
