NVIDIA to make its own smartphones and tablets?

According to Eldar Murtazin, NVIDIA is looking to increase the share of its Tegra processor in smartphones and tablets, and one way to do that would be for the company to build its own smartphones and tablets for regional producers who will decide whether or not to put their name on the device; the devices will roll out in May-June starting with a 7 inch to 10 inch tablet...

Kinda like what asus did with the laptop and desktop a few years back. Looking foward to a tegra device.

Project Shield (a Tegra device) sure is sweet. I want to see what kind of smartphone/tab they can produce.

To be honest, its about time that Nvidia started to do this. I handled a Tegra3 reference tablet made by one of Nvidia's hardware partners, and to be honest I wanted to put it in my bag and run.
The quality was top notch!
Nvidia have more than enough potential to build and sell their own devices just like Samsung.

Rice? Huh? What does that mean? What does rice have to do with a grain of salt?

Micomax & Lava as of today have customers in the budget phone category.
For high end products people opt for HTC, decision Samsung etc. If nvidia can get this right & flood the market with high performance & decently priced devices.... There is good probability of success.

+10. If they make a smartphone variant of the Project Shield device, it would be great. 5 inch 720p screen, a low cost variant of Tegra 4, optimized stock Andoid 4.2.2 all for 200$(in India) would be great.

funny that nvidia is doing this because i actually said awhile back that qualcomm should make their own "snapdragon" smartphone series ...........i think it would be pretty dope if they make a powerful quadcore snapdragon phone with their own chipset inside it :)

No custom skin please. Just a well tune device optimize for gaming and standard google services. We will add whatever we want later.

Optimized for gaming, standard google services, battery life, stability, fluid UI and high benchmark scores.

Seriously why do you need high benchmark scores? I agree with everything you said but high benchmark scores? Only toddlers argue about who has the highest benchmark score.

Similar to the way they do some of thier video cards.. makes sense.

Nvidia should develop x86 chips of their own
