Nvidia Showcases Its Android Based Tablet


The “plastic version of the Apple iPad” isn’t helping Nvidia’s tablet prototype very much, but its technical specifications make you forget all about design.

Nvidia’s Android-based tablet PC isn’t ugly, but the plastic case does feel abit cheap, compared to other tablets, already on the market. But the guys at Gizmodo, wo got the chance to test it, didn’t let themselves get distracted by design, and were amazed to find this gadget shines a lot broighter  on the inside.At the heart of this technological jewel, they discovered Nvidia’s Tegra 2, powered by a core ARM Cortex A9, a chip that’s a generation ahead of the iPad’s A4, 1 Gb of RAM, and two USB ports.

Unfortunately, Nvidia’s 8.9-inch tablet only ran one app, at the time the testing was done, a pretty nice-looking video game (this is Nvidia we’re talking about) that could be controlled beautifully, thanks to the tablet’s capacitive multitouch touchscreen.

I know you can’t wait to get your hands on it, but there’s still no word on when we can expect Nvidia’s Android-powered tablet. All everyone knows is it will come out, eventually.
