Nvidia Looking To Make New Tegra 3 Smartphones Available Just Weeks After MWC

It’s no secret that in this game, once you announce a device, you’re headed for shark infested waters if it takes more than a month or two to actually release the device.  After all, look at what happened to the Bionic.  Nvidia wants to ensure the masses that they plan on getting the device into your hands pretty quickly after announcing it.  During an earnings call today the company’s CEO, Jen Hsun Huang, stated that after announcing these new quad-core monsters at this year’s MWC, they plan on releasing the devices “just weeks” after the announcement.  Huang wasn’t specific as to what devices we’re talking about here, but it’s pretty much a safe bet to put our money on the HTC One X and LG X3, maybe more.  In addition, the company further stated that it plans to ship their new pure cellular chipset, “Gray” some time this year.  The chip will house both 3G and LTE capabilities.  It will certainly be fun watching the quad-core race go into effect, with companies like Texas Instruments and Qualcomm giving Nvidia a run for their money.  Stay tuned as always as we dig a little deeper on which devices will be making an appearance at MWC and which ones won’t.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.
