NVIDIA Announces New Kai Platform For Android Tablets
NVIDIA has officially announced that they are now working on a new platform named NVIDIA Kai for quad-core Android tablets, which is aimed to cut down the price of quad-core Tegra 3 tablets to $199.
“Our strategy on Android is simply to enable quad-core tablets running Android Ice Cream Sandwich to be developed and brought out to market at the $199 price point, and the way we do that is a platform we’ve developed called Kai. So this uses a lot of the secret sauce that’s inside Tegra 3 to allow you to develop a tablet at a much lower cost, by using a lot of innovation that we’ve developed to reduce the power that’s used by the display and use lower cost components within the tablet.” Said, NVIDIA’s CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang.
If this happens soon enough, we will be seeing a much better and powerful tablet, even better than the Amazon’s Kindle Fire. Considering the cheap price tag it will definitely be a huge hit in the market. All we have to know now is the exact time of this $199 quad-core tablet arrival. We are still waiting for the information. Stay tuned for the news.
