Netbook News has come up with this video footage of an Android tablet powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 2 processor. The video only shows off footage of Gridiron game BackBreaker, but there are enough details to grab our attention.
The Tegra 2 is a next-generation, ARM Cortex 9 processor, which is a generation ahead of the chipset found inside the Apple iPad.
The prototype on display is said to have 1GB of RAM, a front facing webcam and microphone, a MicroSD slot, 2 USB slots and possibly a slot for loading in a SIM card.
So it does exist. I had heard that there was going to be a Chrome OS tablet at the Mobile World Congress, and sure enough we finally see in a somewhat lengthy video the folks from Freescale showing off their prototype with a 7″ screen. This was the same model that was shown at CES running Android. The cost? Around $200, running on hardware in the form factor of their model known as the i.MX51. The video shows some locally cached video playback in HTML5:
Here we go — press images of the HP Slate just hit the web, right as Ballmer showed it off during his CES keynote. The prototype device is said to be coming later this year, and it’s running Windows — Ballmer showed it running the PC Kindle app. It’s also multitouch, and can do some gaming — they showed it playing Frogger.
