NVIDIA Tegra based devices delayed to Summer 2009

BusinessWeek published an article about NVIDIA's two new mobile computing platforms: Tegra and Ion. The first Tegra based devices were originally expected by the end of 2008, but the reporter now heard that it will be summer before a Tegra based device hits the market:
he delay could be the result of Nvidia slowly coming to the realization that it takes longer to get a gadget out the door in the handset market than in the PC market—but device makers could also be happy with the application processors they already have, such as Texas Instruments' OMAP processor, which has been recognized as the leading media processor by most OEMs and industry analysts. I hope it's not the latter, because Tegra is truly innovative, and it could result in a smartphone or mobile Internet device that rivals the visual experience currently offered on the iPhone.
