Probably fair to say Nvidia is doing alright for itself in the world of mobile, and – according to shouts from a recent investor meeting – things are set to get even sexier.
While Nvidia’s Tegra 2 featured in 15 smartphones (is that all?) last year, the US chaps reckon Tegra 3 will power double that – 30, for mathphobes – in space year 2012AD.
Good news the first: Nvidia promises Tegra 3 won’t be restricted to superdevices. Au contraire, it’ll feature in a handful of more affordable smartphones, 13 in particular having a transfer price (not the same as retail price) of under $300.
Good news the second: Nvidia also announced its first LTE modem, the Icera 410. The HTC One X, for example, packs a quad-core Tegra 3 processor in the 3G United Kingdoms, but stateside they have the LTE-rockin’ HTC One XL, with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip.
Expect Icera 410 action “later in the year”.
And since I’ve run out of writing steam, let’s close by rattling off some more Tegra 3 devices: Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, LG Optimus 4X HD, Toshiba AT300… that’ll do.
