NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 in 50% of Android tablets in 2011

Looking for a little more power in your Android Tablet? NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 is the new processor on the block and it looks like it will soon be in up to 50% of all ARM- based processors in Android tablets in 2011! DigiTimes reports that Acer, Asus, Toshiba, and Samsung are all reported to be putting out new tablets in the coming year all with the NVIDIA processor! With the Tegra 2 blowing away a lot of benchmarks tests (if your into that sort of thing) it looks like we should be seeing a lot more competitive Android tablets on the market. With Andy Rubin showing off the new Motorola Tablet already it looks like 2011 is shaping up to be the year of the Android tablet! Anyone excited to see more high-powered Android tablets on the market next year? Tablets still too expensive for you? Drop us a comment below and let us know!

By now, we’re pretty sure most of you are expecting 2011 to be the year of the Android tablet.  Google’s already shown off a prototype build of what Motorola has in the works and given us a short glimpse of what Honeycomb will look like on a larger display.  Since most consumers want tablets that perform a little better than their run-of-the-mill Android handset, NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 will soon be the chipset of choice for most manufacturers working on Android tablets.

A new report from Digitimes names Acer, Asus, Toshiba and Samsung as a few of the key players in next year’s tablet battle, all of which will be using the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor.  Due to extremely high demand, the NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset could account for nearly 50% of all ARM-based processors for tablets in 2011.  Based on recent benchmarks, that’s certainly great news for consumers.

Now, we’re just wondering when we’ll be able to stroll into Best Buy and buy one of these tablets without having to take out a second mortgage on our house.
