Tegra for Microsoft, Tegra 2 for Google

The battle of the SoCs to beging around June

So there has been a lot of news about Slate PCs, like phones and SSDs I swear that everyone is working on one. However we have found out something very interesting. It seems that the little NVIDIA Tegra SoC that we all loved in the Zune HD will be getting a serious upgrade in the form of the Terga 2. Now, that all by itself is not interesting at all. What is very interesting is the information that NV might be gearing the new Tegra 2 towards Google's Android over Microsoft Windows Phone 7.


This was found in some information relating to Google's plans for a slate and the fact that even internal information from NV does not seem to show any movement towards an OS from the gang up in Redmond. What is disappointing though is that a Tegra 2 based Windows Phone 7 would have been a serious threat to both HTC and Apple. Of course it would be serious if Microsoft knew how to market anything.


Still we are waiting to get more information as the time nears for these devices to see daylight. As of right now our little birdie is saying June...Just about the time someone else is planning a launch too.
