The folks of Gizmodo have managed to get their hands on an Nvidia’s Android tablet prototype, that you can see pictured below. The device looks pretty nice and it incorporates a 8.9 inch display, plus the Nvidia Tegra 2 solution. The heart of this platform is a dual core ARM Cortex A9 processor, surpassing the iPad’s A4 chipset by a generation.

Also on board you’ll find 1GB RAM (much more than on the iPad), two USB ports and a front facing camera. The units handed out to Gizmodo were only running games, so it’s hard to tell what this baby will do in the future. The widescreen aspect ratio should feel nice both inside and outside of a game and everything should run smoothly courtesy of the horsepower under the hood.

The screen we mentioned is capacitive, of course and it supports multitouch, but we have to mention that it’s not as glossy as the one on the iPad. What do you say? Will this slate sell well?

    Nope. It will not sell well. The screen is too small.

    There is already a flood of 7″ or so tablets from China, all running Android. Who cares about another one, even if it has better specs.

    It needs a screen slightly larger than the iPad (closer to 11″) and battery life to match the iPad. Add Flash and you have a real contender.

    But this prototype? Meh….

    It may do well if they have worked on the android security issues. Also they use USB well woot woot, what about micro hdmi? that would make it more usable for presentations and content sharing. Why ahve full USB? why not make it micro usb? I wonder what other connections it can use? how about a pen that can work with it? as a consumer device it will sell for people who play games and want something to take notes on, as a business and lifestyle unit then I would love to know more about it.
