Nvidia CEO tells us why Tegra2 tablets aren’t selling…nobody surprised

Jen-Hsun Huang is the CEO of Nvidia. He isn’t very happy with the lack of sales in the non Apple tablet area. With a report that the Xoom has terrible sales, and the Asus Transformer out  of stock everywhere Mr. Huang has a good reason to be upset. What does he chalk it up to? Well the same things we all know are the issues. “It’s a point of sales problem. It’s an expertise at retail problem. It’s a marketing problem to consumers. It is a price point problem,” Huang has said.

So to sum it up, cost too much, retailers don’t care and he missed out on the fact the market doesn’t have much support for tablets yet. The CEO is pretty optimistic of upcoming devices and upgrades to the Android tablet industry. “But those problems are all getting solved. The rate at which these Honeycomb Tegra 2 tablets are being improved is really stunning,” Huang continued. “I think all of the manufacturers have now recognized that and readjusted their plans.” Are you taking notes, Motorola?
