  • NVIDIA's Android tablet looks pretty sexy

    With a Tegra 2 Tegra 2-esque ARM A9-based processor confirmed Tegra 2 inside, 9.7″8.9″ wide screen, and a full gig of RAM, these tablets from Foxconn (unnamed and undated) look to be pretty serious pieces of hardware.

    Based on orders and production numbers reported by Digitimes, it looks like the holidays are going to be… portable.
