Nvidia couldn’t have sit the Black Friday deal frenzy out, especially since the Shield handheld console isn’t exactly selling like hotcakes, and so the gaming gear has been discounted for purchases via an array of retailers.
After the iPhone 5S and the gold edition of the Galaxy S4 that is set to go on sale in the Middle East, it looks like Xiaomi is going to launch gold editions of the Mi3 and Mi2S.
Seeing as Microsoft’s first-gen Surface tabs have been colossal sales duds (especially the one running Win RT) and Nokia, which is close to becoming Redmond’s property, is prepping a far superior slate with FHD screen and Snapdragon 800 CPU, you’d think the wisest call at this point would be the halting of the Surface project.
Founded in 2009 in Canada and acquired in 2011 by Japanese tech giant Rakuten, Kobo has been a fairly shy presence in the gadget world so far. Their e-readers are sizzling hot up North, where they’ve been outselling Kindles for more than a year, but worldwide they’re a mere blip on Amazon’s radar.
As you well know by now, Nvidia’s newest mobile chip, the Tegra 4, is shaping up to be an illustrious dud, despite its makers trying to turn the tables by manufacturing devices powered by the CPU from scratch.
Abandoned by virtually every old Tegra 3 partner, including big names of the mobile industry such as Google, Asus, HTC or Sony, Nvidia has only a couple of cards left to play with the new, zippy but pricey and power-demanding Tegra 4 chips.
Tegra has been hard pressed for design wins in tablets, but Nvidia promises the SoC has a future with the Surface 2 and Nvidia Tab.
Nvidia’s Tegra 4 chips might have little to no chance of ever achieving the heights of popularity of their predecessors (aka Tegra 3), but that doesn’t mean we can’t get psyched over the handful of devices that will end up using the costly platform.
The day has come when Nvidia’s Tegra 4 chipset finally sees itself in a phone which is actually being launched into the market, and will be available to consumers for purchase. The ZTE Geek U988S is the world’s first Tegra 4 Smartphone, and is coming soon to China Mobile.
PhoneArena has for us a leaked image of the upcoming ZTE U988S, to be the world’s first Nvidia Tegra 4 powered Smartphone.
It’s no longer a secret that Nvidia has lost a very important battle against the likes of Qualcomm, MediaTek or Samsung due mostly to the high cost of the new Tegra 4 platform, but the mobile processing war is not over.
Orders for Nvidia’s much-hyped Tegra 4 have been limited as OEMs consider other chips instead.
Looks like Nvidia’s Project Shield missed its deadline once again as the Tgra 4 based handheld Android gaming console slips for a July launch instead.
Hot on the wheels of the first Tegra 4 product launched in the market is HP’s new Slate 21, a 21.5-inch All-In-One running on Android OS and powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 4 SoC.
Say hello to the Toshiba REGZA AT703, the world’s first Tegra 4 based smart device (tablet) to go on sale.
The Surface experiment failed, there’s no question about it anymore, but what remains to be seen is whether Microsoft will look to ditch the tablet market early or give it a second try. At the moment, the latter seems more likely, as second-gen Surface slates are reportedly in the works.
As rumors of Snapdragon 800-based devices grow in intensity and number by the day, reports concerning possible gadgets with Nvidia’s Tegra 4 chipset inside seem to be oddly quieting down. Still, the first phone running on Tegra 4 might have been spotted mere hours ago.
After the not-so-exciting “Thrive” and “Excite” line of products in 2012, Toshiba is back with three new Android tablets. The more interesting two of those three pack Nvidia’s Tegra 4 chipset under the hood. Say hello to the Toshiba Excite Pure, Excite Pro and Excite Write (in increasing order of specifications superiority), three 10-inch plastic-build
ASUS expanded its Transformer line-up today by announcing the Transformer Pad Infinity and the unique new Transformer Pad Trio. ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity The Transformer Pad Infinity is a unique tablet. It holds the title for the world’s first product to be announced with Nvidia’s (troubled and massively delayed) Tegra 4 chipset. ASUS CEO Jerry
