Next Generation Tegra Showcased in Android Tablet

NVIDIA Next Generation TegraAt CES 2010, NVIDIA displayed a 7-inch Android tablet by Compal. This tablet is a concept design featuring NVIDIA’s new, Next Generation Tegra processor. The tablet features Android 2.1, WiFi, a SIM slot, an HDMI-out port and plays full HD video.

Both Engadget and Gizmodo got a hands-on with the device. In both cases the take-away is that the tablet in this early prototype form has some usability issues but excels at playing HD video.

This concept design is less about the tablet than it is about NVIDIA showcasing the possibilities of the Next Generation Tegra chip. Click on through to Engadget for a video of the HD-displaying tablet in action.

    Wanna see an impressive Tegra based Android device? Head over to jkontherun's article on Nvidia Tegra tablets ( http://jkontherun.com/2010/01/09/nvidia-powered-d… ), and start watching at 9:29 into it. The Notion Ink Adam looks AMAZING. It is the top of my "must buy" list right now. 10" display, Pixel Qi screen, fast but power conscious cpu. It's amazing.

    Anyway PC games will increasingly be constrained by the console versions, until the new generation of consoles is coming so on. And as always there is a graphic to jump out of new consoles, we can easily say that consoles are leading the dance. And while piracy will be as simple and common of all, the PC game will "complement" of consoles and not the reverse.
