Nvidia Talks Superphones, Tablets, and Tegra 2


Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang told reporters in Taiwan that so-called "Superphones" have a bright future. Superphones are essentially handheld devices sporting LCD screens 4-inches or larger with at least a 1GHz processor. These are bigger than your average smartphone phone, but smaller than tablets.

One such superphone is Motorola's Droid X, which runs on Nvidia's Tegra 2 platform. According to Huang, you can expect more Tegra 2-based superphones in 2011, though he didn't elaborate

Huang also suggested that, as time goes on, tablet PCs will continue to encroach on netbook territory and eventually replace the segment altogether.
