Tegra 2 tablets at CES 2011

Gingerbread dependent
Nvidia is a year behind of its Tegra 2 tablet plans. This time around, it is not the green goblin's fault, it is actually a Google’s fault. The infamous Gingerbread operating system is the one Google wants tablet maker to use.

Gingerbread will likely become Android 2.3 and Dr. Erick Schmidt has announced at the web 2.0 conference that it should launch “in a few weeks”. Everything points to a late 2010 launch, most likely December.

Nvidia’s Tegra 2 chip is waiting for this OS, as only Samsung dared to go out with Android 2.2, something that is not that good for tablets, claims Google. Tegra 2 tablets will definitely be showcased at CES 2011, a tradeshow that starts in early days of January 2011, some six weeks from today, and we can hope that some of them will ship reasonably quickly after that.

Tegra 2 phones, LG in particular will also see the light of the day. We only fear that by the time Nvidia ships its first Tegra 2 design wins that iPad 2 with a dual-core ARM 9 Cortex-based chip will be just around the corner.
