NVIDIA want to challenge Qualcomm to a duel, courtesy of the Android OS, or so claims CEO Jen-Hsun Huang. Apparently, the company’s second generation Tegra solution will be more focused on multimedia and performance, being a real threat to Snapdragon chipsets and Apple A4 as well. Huang sees the NVIDIA Tegra 2-Android combo turning into smartphones and tablets in Q3 and Q4 2010.
Meanwhile, the NVIDIA CEO found some time to answer the folks among investors and analysts, claiming the Fermi GPU is a disappointment. NVIDIA has a lot of testing to do before the chip goes mainstream, because it’s a much larger unit than usual, with 3 billion transistors included.
Will we ever see a tablet with NVIDIA branding on and Android running the show?
