Here's some potentially bad news for everyone who isn't Apple. SlashGear reports that a “trusted source” in the industry has informed them that ALL products based on the Tegra 2 chipset are being delayed. None of them are likely to launch before August, 2010.

The reason? A perfect storm of hardware and software issues that impact both stability and Flash playback. Several high-profile iPad competitors will be hit by this, including Notion Ink's Adam and ICD's badass tablets. This is a major pain in the butt for everyone looking for a solid, non-Apple tablet.

It pains me to write this, but these delays are likely to help Apple out a LOT. They're getting several months extra to solidify their position in the market. No solid competing products will be available for months, which gives Apple plenty of time to dominate. Here's to hoping this rumor is just a nasty prank!
