The other big news from the Nvidia earnings call was an ETA for when we can expect Android phones powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor to hit retail shelves (not get announced actually available). According to Nvidia we should see quad-core Tegra 3 powered phones this quarter.
Now don’t take this information with a grain of salt. Last year Nvidia’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang had said that the first quad-core Tegra 3 powered Android tablet would hit before the end of 2011. Despite the fact you may not be able to pick one up right this second, the Asus Transformer Prime, was available before the end of the year.
Nvidia is promising more quad-core firsts at a press event we’ll be live blogging and live broadcasting on TDGN on Slacker/AOL radio at Mobile World Congress. We’ll have to wait just about 10 days to reveal the quad-core goodness.
