First Tegra 2-optimized games land in the Android Market, have the TDH suffix
Most people agree that one of the best things that the dual-core (and soon the quad-core) processors will bring is amazing game experience on mobile devices, and the first Tegra games which are optimized for such use are Fruit Ninja TDH (costs $3.03), Backbreaker THD ($4.99), Samurai II: Vengeance THD ($4.81) and Dungeon Defenders: FW Deluxe ($4.99).
Fruit Ninja TDH and Backbreaker THD are set to offer improved gameplay and graphics compared to their TDH-less versions, while the TDH version of Dungeon Defender has Tegra-exclusive missions, enemies, bosses, pets and weapons.
So far the only commercially launched devices running Tegra 2 processor are the recently released Motorola XOOM, LG Optimus 2X and ViewSonic ViewPad 10, but more are coming soon.
Also, it seems all games which are Tegra-optimized will have the THD suffix, so we better get used to it.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe the first commercially available device with the Tegra 2 processor was the Viewsonic G-Tablet launched Q4 2010.

Yup, it's the Viewsonic G-tablet that has the Tegra 2 processor. You also have the Advent Vega and Malata Zpad which are essentially cousins of the G-tablet.
