Tegra 2 tablets at CES 2011

Written by Fuad Abazovic
nvidia

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.

The Samsung tablet runs just great with Android 2.2 so I presume there's more to Tegra 2's delay.

Really? You don't know what the hell you're talking about! So I guess you know more than Google, the maker of the OS. "Android 2.2, something that is not that good for tablets, claims Google." What a moron.

I saw Samsung's live presentation of the Galaxy Tab, and I fail to see what problems Android 2.2 might cause. Not that good =/= impossible/broken
And please keep your insults to yourself.

really? you dont see the limitations of 2.2? are you blind?
not that good = hard to sell = not going to be released
going to the moon? its not impossible yet only china is attempting it right now because it really dosnt make much sense for anybody else. now please, learn some reading comprehension

I'm pretty sure Tegra was believed to be delayed due to Windows before?
So it has probs with both googles OS and Microsofts? Sounds to me like the problem is Tegra....

so you admit that the problem is the os then turn back and say its the hardware???
Tegra worked fine with windows... the Kin/Zune ran on Tegra 1 and had no problems hardware wise however Zune didn't sell amazingly and the Kin was a complete dud due to the carrier plan pricing (they are selling it as a feature phone now i think)

(continued!!!! damn comment limit)

as for android, you can see on the current Tegra tablets ie, folio 100 that the incompatibility is android's fault not Tegra. it was able to run android just fine however the android market was disabled because most if not all of the apps didn't work due to screen resolution

(omfg and it wont let me post second comment right away lame!!!)

Samsung is a Korean company. And with a bit of tweaking, Android 2.2 can work very nicely on any tablet.
