We were given a taste of Project Kal-El (Tegra 3) at Mobile World Congress, where NVIDIA went as far as showing a working tablet with the first mobile quad-core processor. During this presentation, NVIDIA also shared availability details of these quad-core CPUs, stating that Tegra 3 tablets should be available by August, and smartphones by Christmas (Nexus 3?).
Further proving the accuracy of this statement, Fudzilla’s sources claim that Motorola might be the first to release a Tegra 3 tablet, with a device arriving before “back-to-school time,” around September.
Whether this tablet will be named the Motorola Xoom 2, or any other name, it will sure be quite the sensation. Tegra 3 is reported to deliver 5x the performance of its predecessor, with graphics that will blow your mind (New 12-core NVIDIA GPU). Since Tegra processors are built for gaming, we can only expect to have incredible media capabilities and blazing processing speeds from the next generation quad-core Tegra 3 tablets.
Though Motorola might be the first to bring Tegra 3 to the table, we know that it will not be alone for long, as NVIDIA’s future is looking very bright. Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO of NVIDIA, claims that Android tablets will beat iPads in under 3 years, and 10 OEMs are already working on delivering Tegra 3 devices. One of the upcoming Amazon tablets is rumored to ship with a Tegra 3 processor as well, so things are looking very promising for Android’s future.
We do not have many details on this Motorola tablet, but since we all love to speculate, lets see what we can come up with. What do you guys expect of Motorola’s Tegra 3 tablet? What price and other specs do you think it will have? Would you rather wait for another manufacturer to release a Tegra 3 tablet?
