Nvidia promises Tegra 3 phones in December

Written by Fuad Abazovic
tegra

Tablets in August
Nvidia can be really sensitive about claims of future products it makes, especially Tegra. They were not happy that we expressed doubts about their August launch timeframe for consumer devices based on the upcoming Kal-El Tegra 3 core.

Now Nvidia went on record claiming Kal-El, or should we say next generation Tegra consumer devices, mainly tablets, will come in August. This is what they officially state. It should be fun to buy them in retail in August, which many of you know as the back to school period. Nvidia also said that Kal-El, next generation Tegra superphones are coming in December. Let's see this one again the company shipping them to retail on this date. Tegra 2 devices are still hard to find, and we know that Google's Honeycomb delay is mostly to blame.

Nvidia was also keen to remind us that Qualcomm's quad-core only comes to the sampling stage in early 2012 with actual products coming in late 2012. Texas Instruments ' OMAP 5 is scheduled for 2h 2012, roughly a year after Kal-El.

Let's hope that Nvidia can keep up with its schedule and that Tegra tablets are going to happen.

So nVidia didn't like you questioning their time frames?

I mean it's not like Tegra 2 can hardly be found, nor did Fermi take almost a full year after the planned release to get out a decent version.

Which is why I'm glad Fudzilla caved and is now touting nVidia's official line as gospel once again.

iPhone5, its the only way if you actually want to put the hardware in your phone to maximum use.

Android phones maybe have better specs but the Apps have to run on your cutting edge quad-core but also run on some cheap ass single core you get free with a packet of corn flakes!
Where as the iPhone App developers know exactly what hardware they have and that it will not change for the next 12 months so they can squeeze every last fps out of the CPUs and GPUs making for graphically much better games.

lol, I love how people on this site hate Apple or Intel or Microsoft or nVidia or pretty much any company that is successful!

People are quick to mark me down but not so ready help me see why i am so wrong.

How are people disagreeing with a large hardware base means better software and an erratic hardware base means software will be poorly optimised?

Hate them? No buddy, we're just making fun of them on how they got there: by enslaving customers, buying out OEM's, suing the little guy, blatantly lie to customers, each corresponding to the respective company you listed.

Yeah, I guess no one wants to be identified with those things/actions even if it means to be the underdog.

Enjoy your winning products because chances are you've been through some of the things listed above and that's not even the sad part, no, the sad part is you don't even realize it. A company is a commercial outfit that doesn't have its users best intent.

How dare the computer companies make these products and screw the end user by daring to make a profit.Don't they know they are supposed to give them to us free of charge. :P

How dare they enslave asians in sweatshops, force each them to make an iphone every 90 minutes while gettin payed monthly with less then the cost of such an iphone.

How dare they put faulty chips on the market even if they knew of the issues before launch, that means you nvidia and intel.

More like pink elephants under launch table.

*just being ironic this time*

I don't know why people so worked up about this all the time. If Apple didn't employ them then what else would they be doing?

They get paid the going rate for the country and job they are in. If they didn't then they would get a job else where.

Just because the iPhone is ridiculously priced compared to that country's minimum wage doesn't make Apple a bad company.
