Nvidia believes it can make serious inroads in the tablet market next year. CEO Jen-Hsun Huang claims non-Apple tablets are becoming a serious alternative to Apple, thanks to software optimization and higher performance, courtesy of next generation chips.

Nvidia is not pinning its hopes solely on Android. It believes Windows will also emerge as a major player in the tablet market, but Redmond’s new OS with ARM support probably won’t be out until Q4 next year. However, Huang cautions that the OS could be delayed even further.
