NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang revealed during yesterday's earnings call that a flood of Android tablets are on the way and that traditional notebooks may be impacted by this new market segment.
Though Huang said he is sworn to secrecy until Android tablets come out and couldn't give details, he did say that upcoming tablets using its dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor "give you the benefit of higher performance and much, much better multitasking and better graphics." All of these combined can lead to a different experience than the iPad, Huang said.
"There's going to be all kinds of interesting industrial designs," he said. "And I think the high-level concept is that when you have such an incredibly low-power SOC [system-on-a-chip] then industrial design freedom really grows." He made clear during the earnings conference call that his company is working with Google on Android tablets.
