Sony Goes With Nvidia For Tablet Devices

Sony has embraced Nvidia chips for its new tablet devices, a new report revealed.

With this move by the company, Nvidia chips are soon expected to become the industry-standard for the Android Tablet world, at least for a while, a Sony Vice President reportedly said in an interview on Wednesday.

In his interview with the Japan based Impress Watch, a senior vice president of the company Kunimasa Suzuki said, "For the tablet platform, we're standardising on Android 3.0 and Nvidia's Tegra 2".

Earlier on Tuesday, Sony launched two new “Honeycomb” tablets powered by the Android 3.0 operating system. One of these devices features a 9.4 inch display with 1200 x 800 resolution and two cameras, both at front, as well as on the rear, while the other one is equipped with a couple of 5.5 inch displays. Interestingly both the tablets carried Nvidia Tegra 2 processor.

However, Sony is not the first in the list of tablet manufacturers who has combined the Android Operating System with the Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. Motorola had also taken the same path with its Xoom tablet, thus can be called one step ahead of Sony in this regard.
