There have not been any talk of a hands-on with Nvidia's new Tegra 4 reference tablet after the original keynote, since Nvidia decided to hold it back from the press and keep it under wraps. However, the company caved in and let some members of the press to have a quick hands-on.
Although there was not much to see here since there have been other Tegra 4 tablets at the show, Engadget.com notes that the 11-inch tablet was impressively light. They even had a chance to try out the Riptide GP 2, designed for the Tegra chip. The prototype was running on Android 4.0.2 and was running circles around it.
The reference tablet also featured micro-USB, HDMI and storage expansion ports/slots as well as some kind of a dock connector. Of course, it was no wonder that the device would perform well, but we guess that we will see a real showdown of mobile chipmakers at MWC 2013 in February.
