GTC 2010: Super phones from Samsung, Nokia, LG

Jen Hsun Huang was confronted in fireside chat by Quentin Hardy, national editor of Forbes and once again, we learned some new things about Nvidia.

Huang believes that there should be many "super phones", which are basically phones bigger than an iPhone that can do a lot of cool stuff and that should be powered by Tegra 2. That is a dual-core mobile CPU of course, and Huang hopes to see it in Samsung, LG and Nokia phones.

Some of them should become reality and this is most likely to happen at some point in 2011. Tablets based on Tegra 2 might show their face in time for Xmas, but even this is quite unlikely due to a lack of good Tablet operating system available today.

Super phones sound like a nice concept and HTC Evo is what Jensen describes as a superphone, the only bad thing for Nvidia is that all high end phones today are using something other than Tegra or Tegra 2, in most cases Qualcomm's super popular Snapdragon.

There are other companies making ARM chips (Marvell, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, etc.) and by the looks of it, at least from the Marvell article here on Fudzilla, they seem to be doing a better job.

nVidia's CEO likes to call Tegra the second coming... but sadly it isn't.

Well it depends... A few years back there was really no need for good graphics on ARM parts.

Now we've got a ton of high end phones, tablets are also on the way, so a new market is slowly emerging - eye candy sells.

Whether Nvidia will manage to fill the need with Tegra is another thing though...

@ "Jensen hopes to see many Tegra 2 phones"

But first you have to release them and don't ask for an insane price for it.
