WSJ writes LG will use NVIDIA's Tegra 2 SoC in its upcoming line of Optimus smartphones. These phones are expected to start shipping later this year.
So far, the most notable phone to use Tegra was Microsoft’s failed Kin youth-centric device. But LG committing to Nvidia gives the graphics-chip maker something to potentially boast about. Much of the awareness of the faster generation of 1-gigahertz processors for smartphones have focused on Qualcomm Inc.’s Snapdragon processor, found in HTC’s Incredible and Evo, or Samsung Electronics’s Hummingbird chip, found in its own line of Galaxy S phones.
