Quad-core power in your pockets.
During Nvidia’s financial call over the weekend, some interesting new came out amid the falling revenue as Tegra 2 sales dropped surprisingly fast.
CEO Jen-Hsung Huang announced during the earnings call that Tegra 3 powered smartphones will be out, essentially before April this year as reported by Android Central. ”This quarter we are expecting to ship Tegra 3 based superphones. At Mobile World Congress is when we expect to announce these devices, and we expect to announce and ship them this quarter.”
As of now, there are only a handful of Tegra 3 powered devices on the market, all of which are tablets. For instance the ASUS Transformer Prime, Acer Tab A700, and the Lenovo IdeaPad K2. The new Tegra 3 powered devices will be shown at MWC at the end of this week, and we’ll be sure to cover them.
