Nvidia Shows Off Android with Tegra

Nvidia Shows Off Android with TegraNvidia worked closely with Open Handset Alliance and came up with new Tegra APX 2600 processor running Android OS at the ongoing Mobile World Congress (MWC). These Tegra APX 2600 application processors are capable of HD video playback from 720p to 1080p.

Aimed at the Android based device development, Nvidia believes that Android sales will surpass Windows Mobile sales by 2012. Hence by working closely with Android, Nvidia’s Tegra APX 2600 chipset promises high-definition video playback, low power consumption and better looking interface. Thus, Nvidia is pushing Android OS with its Tegra APX processors for the portable/mobile devices platform.

In addition to its Tegra APX 2600 applications processors, Nvidia also hinted about two mysteriously named phones S2 and Yulong N8 expected in Q3 and Q4 of this year respectively.

At the MWC, Nvidia showed off the prowess of Tegra APX 2600 chipset on a prototype device that flaunted a 1080p HD video playback. Check the demo of what Tegra APX processors are capable of here.

The Tegra APX 2600 chipset isn’t just for mobile phones; it will be usable in Mobile Internet Devices, Portable Navigation Devices, and Portable Media Players. Doesn’t this remind of what the Creative Zii platform can do? Well it surely does.

So what can users expect from Tegra APX chips? Well, one can expect more handheld devices with HD video playback capabilities and longer battery life. Hopefully, by the end of the year, we’ll get to see working handheld devices spruced with Nvidia’s Tegra APX application processor.
