Nvidia wants value end tablets on the market as soon as possible according to an article in the New York Times. They are targeting the sub-$199 price point and wants to see them hit the shelves this summer.
Spurned in by the sales of the Amazon Kindle Fire, and following lacklustre sales of top end Android tablets, the Taiwanese chipset vendor clearly thinks the value tier is where they can make the most money.
Nvdia’s CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, also fired a warning shot against Android tablet manufacturers by touting the prospect of a Tegra 3 powered Windows 8 tablet. It seems they think that Google’s mobile OS is not the only donkey to back in the race where the iPad is the clear favourite.
