NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 system-on-a-chip (SoC) components are reportedly surging in popularity, with some sources claiming we’ll be seeing around 30 Tegra 2 tablets at CES next month. The rumours continue as Digitimes reports that Acer, Asustek, Toshiba, and Samsung are each developing tablets based on the platform. Strong graphics performance and Flash support have been credited with helping to push Tegra 2 sales, while NVIDIA is said to be offering attractive discounts to promote the platform.
This information regarding Tegra 2 customers is not much of a surprise, however the inclusion of Samsung’s name to the list might suggest that they may be departing from its current strategy of developing its own hardware platform for tablets. Samsung has yet to confirm that it will produce tablets built with Tegra 2 chips, so it’s all just speculation at this stage of the game.
