Kal-El devices won’t come in August

Written by Fuad Abazovic
tegra

It will be later

We can remember that Nvidia was persistent at the Kal El announcement that the devices will hit retail as soon as August. Our Far East sources are quite confident that this won’t happen and that it will launch at later date, probably when it gets colder in the northern hemisphere.

Nvidia doesn’t want to talk about Kal-El, but it did release some basic specification back in January, but at this time, it is not ready to share more. Some more Tegra 2 devices will launch before the end of the year and Kal-El a chip that might end up as Tegra 3, should also come soon, just not in August.

Different sources suggested that Kal-El definitely comes in Q3 2011 that for the normal world ends with September 30th, but have in mind that Nvidia’s Q3 ends more month later. This can give us some ideas about the latest possible launch date. One thing is certain, the launch date should happen much before Thanksgiving and the rest of the shopping spree to follow.

Yawn. 40nm, for a quad core. Bad, bad move Nvidia. Another failure on their hands.

At least Drac, brofist and Warrior will still buy Huang's dire products.

And you're still trolling on every single nvidia related article. You are no better than drac and warrior.

Later? Or maybe never! Don't think the interest is that big for Tegra3. Marvel and Samsung will totally annihilate it with their new ARM chips

Absolutely correct, Stress. Not to mention Apple, ST-M, and Qualcomm. Tegra will sit at the bottom of the pile. Nvidia will literally have to give it away.

Calling Mr Huang, your time is up.

Correction: Nvidia Q3 is January

Anyway this Quad will suckup battery so fast that your device will last maximum of 2 hrs.

The Motorola Atrix 4G can plug into a netbook keyboard & screen dock with an extra battery, or it can plug into a USB & HDMI dock/hub for use with a keyboard and mouse and monitor/TV, or it can plug into a car dock for use as a GPS navigator, presumably on steady charge from the car's cigarette lighter adapter. The Atrix is only a Tegra 2, which was groundbreaking merely 5 months ago. So there are cases when a modern smartphone can be used on extended battery and also on AC power in the home, or DC power in the car.
