Nvidia CEO calls Android the most "versatile" OS in history
posted by Alan F. / Nov 07, 2013, 8:58 PM
"Android is the most disruptive operating system that we've seen in a few decades, in a couple of decades," said Huang. He also called it the most "versatile" operating system ever seen, noting how it connects to the cloud and can also come out of the box full of apps making it useful from the moment you first boot up an Android powered device. The versatility comes from Android's ability to drive more than just smartphones. Huang notes how the OS can also be found on tablets, gaming systems, set-top boxes and all-in-one PCs.
Nvidia reported that for the third quarter, revenue for the Tegra 4 SoC more than doubled and the co-founder, president and CEO said that the success of the Tegra 4 is dependent on the success of Android. Nvidia's own Shield gaming system uses the Tegra 4 and is driven by Android. Huang sees Android becoming a very important platform for gaming moving forward. Even with this in mind, Huang says that Nvidia has very moderate expectations for Shield. Unequivocally, the big driver of Nvidia's performance next year will be the Tegra 4, says Huang, which means that Android will play a major part in the company's performance next year.

the reason why android has 82% of market has nothing to do with consumer choice & preferences, its simply because there is no others available OS in the market when smartphone segment started to grow during 2007-08. Apple offering something that is never seen in any smartphone before, smartphone manufacturer had to do something before apple take up the market share. As a matter of facts, not much companies capable of create their own OS except software tech giant like Microsoft/google/apple. Even blackberry, nokia , samsung cant come up with their own "sophisticated" OS by that time, Or fast enough to create one. Due to Microsoft slow response (as usual) smartphone manufacturers have no other available OS for them to choose except android in order to compete with Apple. In facts, there is only android available for the rest of smartphone manufacturer by that time, there is no choice for consumer, the choice was made by the smartphone manufacturer. its either for HTC, Samsung, Sony and the rest to develop their own OS or used the one that is cheap and available. so, up to today, its either for a consumer to choose and Iphone or the rest of the other smartphones ( which is basically all run on android ), and majority of the consumer is not afford to buy an iphone. ( more than 80% of the world population earn less than %10/day) . so its not surprise android will dominate majority of the smartphone market.

Win Mo was still around and 1 or2 in market share at that time in 2007, 2008. Manufactures that jumped on Android were gambling...and it paid off. It woulda been a safer bet to go with WIn Mo. Ppl chose Android when it was very unknown. You gotta give credit to Android for that...just like ppl chose the iPhone when it was very unknown.

Lol people cant afford iphone its a matter of preference the phone are very competitively priced in the US so no way you can say that, if iphone availability isnt around for the rest of the world or other markets thats their loss other markets dont have contracts so they have to buy phone full priced. Most of them stick to what their used use to which is probably android. The US has high respect value for iphone and the only comment they have is what you said about affording one. I'm still going to wait for the next phone that has Tegra 4 by end of year none is out then I'll get the htc one max
