NVIDIA's CEO Jen-Hsun Huang says that quad-core CPU Tablets still arrive this year.
We expect a new wave of Android tablets this fall in conjunction with the release of Ice Cream Sandwich. It was not clear what else these new tablets could offer. The big thing would be the Kal-El NVIDIA CPU with four cores, but NVIDIA did not confirm the release yet for 2011. This has changed now. Forbes reports that NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang confirmed to them that Google Android Tablets based on Kal-El (codename) Quad-Core Tegra CPU are indeed launching this year. Kal-El is supposed to deliver unseen performance on tablets. Below are a couple videos from NVIDIA that demonstrate the processing power of Kal-El (Tegra 3?).
The Tegra 2 based Android Tablets did not really hurt Apple's iPad sales. With Kal-El that could change. On top of that Amazon is expected to attack from the low-end with their Amazon Kindle Tablet this Fall.
