NVIDIA reconfirmed its commitment to Android in yesterday's earnings call:
IN A CONFERENCE CALL about Nvidia's first quarter financial results, the Green Goblin's CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang said that his plans for a next-gen Tegra include the use of Android.
With every man and his dog seemingly wanting a smartphone, Nvidia is looking to get a slice of the market, and it sees Tegra as the way to get its foot in the door.
Tegra, its mobile web processor, will be able to run the Android 3 OS, Jen-Hsun added, and that will help it take on other, more established firms. "Although it made sense for the first-generation Androids to use available phone processors, the follow-on generations of Android are really going to go after performance," he said in the conference call, which is transcribed here. "And Iphones are out there, the Iphone 4G is coming, the Ipad is obviously a revolutionary product. The bar is pretty high for all of the mobile players."
