HTC prepping a quad-core tablet with NVIDIA Tegra 3 to be announced at MWC

HTC prepping a quad-core tablet with NVIDIA Tegra 3 to be announced at MWC
Hot on the heels of HTC's CEO Peter Chou saying "It's a market we would like to try and test, to see whether we can make ourselves stand out and prevent a me-too product," about tablets, there comes a report that the company is ready to show one at the MWC expo next year.

The tablet will be powered by NVIDIA's quad-core Tegra 3 processor, says the Chinese Commercial Times, but not much else is known about it at this point. The economics newspaper also notes that at MWC HTC will show two Android smartphones along with the tablet, one with Tegra 3 as well - well, hello there rumored HTC Edge and HTC Ville.

It's a bit weird to hear all these rumors that HTC will be using NVIDIA for its smartphones and tablets, though, since it's been all about Qualcomm until now, and the Californians even bought a minority stake in HTC in 2001. Interestingly enough, Commercial Times mentions out of the blue that the tablet will be launched a bit before Windows 8 is released, but insists that the quad-core tablet will run Android.

In any case, there is not much else about it at this point, so we are patiently awaiting the MWC expo in Barcelona, which starts February 27.

Come on, all these crazy faster CPU and miss out most important formular to keep up with fast is RAM. I rather take dual core proceedor with 2gb Ram over Quad-cor 1gb ram anyday. RAM IS WHAT KEEP DEVICE RN SMOOTH AND LESS LAGGY.

everything kills your battery. couple more ram with a quadcore and you are probably even on battery use to still slightly better as the Quad core is better than a dual core for battery usage.
