Tegra 2 tablets coming soon

CES 2010: All down to software


Director
of Nvidia’s Tegra Business Bill Henry was happy to show us two Tegra 2 based tablets, and we were able to interact and play with them. Telecoms should probably be among first companies to bring these devices to market, and we can tell that at least one of the two prototypes runs quite fast.

It is all up to software, as Tegra 2 has a Cortex A9 dual-core CPU and enough horsepower to play HD video, and if the developers manage to optimize the software these devices will be fine.

The operating system of choice seems to be Android, while everyone goes for the 7 inch format. One of the two tablets we’ve seen had Jensen's personal pictures on it, and this was the faster or two. (Tegra knows who's her daddy. sub.ed.)

The user interface is easy to use, touch navigated of course, and the whole device simply looks like an oversized iPhone wannabe. We expect to see quite a few of them, but the only reason to go out and buy them would be if Tegra-based tablets end up really cheap. At the moment you can buy most 10-inch netbooks for under $299, so tablet pricing should be close.
