So who got a Playbook? I tried to get on and they are sold out everywhere. I hate to say this but RIM copied HP, and that’s fine, at least they don’t intent to close the QNX doors like HP did with Web Os and the Touch Pad. Well if you missed the boat and were unable to get a Playbook, have no fear, because an affordable tablet($299) is coming out way, armed with Tegra 3 hardware.
So far what is the biggest threat to the iPad’s largely unchallenged supremacy in the tablet market? The answer has certainly got to be Amazon’s Kindle Fire, which sports a very enticing $200 price tag. Even though the Kindle Fire is probably the only non-iPad tablet to have generated iPad-like buzz, it’s not the only affordable tablet on the market. The ranks of sub-$300 tablets are constantly swelling. And if NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang is right, soon there will be a number of Tegra 3 tablets in this price range.
We are talking about 4 core CPU and a 12 core GPU, and the tablet will have up to 2GB of memory, not to be confused with actually storage, as it will most likely support up to 64GB of storage. Go herefor more information on Tegra 3.
