nVidia's New Tegra Mobile Platform

"Today, NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) introduced the Tegra family of processors, the world’s first single-chip computer capable of the rich high definition and internet experiences we’ve come to expect from our PCs, but on small pocket type devices. NVIDIA Tegra is a tiny computer-on-a-chip, smaller than a US dime (10-cent piece), designed from the ground up to enable the 'visual PC experience' on a new generation of mobile computing devices while consuming the smallest amount of power...The NVIDIA Tegra 650 processor is the second product in the Tegra line, the first being the NVIDIA Tegra APX 2500 processor, which is enabling the next generation of Windows Mobile smartphones. With the launch of this new processor, the NVIDIA Tegra products will reach consumers towards the end of the year."



One has to be very careful about getting excited about corporate PR, but if you do read this nVidia release, the Tegra 650 sounds like a promising ARM-based platform (1080p output!). Of course, there's no guarantee we'll see a WM device with it right away, but given the "Windows Mobile Board Support Package" and the existing adoption of the APX 2500, things look promising. Time will tell.
