By now, we’re pretty sure most of you are expecting 2011 to be the year of the Android tablet. Google’s already shown off a prototype build of what Motorola has in the works and given us a short glimpse of what Honeycomb will look like on a larger display. Since most consumers want tablets that perform a little better than their run-of-the-mill Android handset, NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 will soon be the chipset of choice for most manufacturers working on Android tablets.
A new report from Digitimes names Acer, Asus, Toshiba and Samsung as a few of the key players in next year’s tablet battle, all of which will be using the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. Due to extremely high demand, the NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset could account for nearly 50% of all ARM-based processors for tablets in 2011. Based on recent benchmarks, that’s certainly great news for consumers.
Now, we’re just wondering when we’ll be able to stroll into Best Buy and buy one of these tablets without having to take out a second mortgage on our house.
