In the market for a table, but I havent sold myself on anything yet, but the Nexus 7 is a top contender.

For me it's worth the wait. I've been looking at the Nexus 7 and was close to getting one but when I heard about the new one I decided to wait. It's worth it for me just for the 1080p screen but I really like the snapdragons too.

Wait for the Nexus 7 2.0. I have a 7 and while it's good, the Nexus 4 and HTC One run circles around it. The screen density is also still a bit lacking. The 2.0 model should be pretty much everything anyone could want (save removable storage, but menh).

I'll definitely be grabbing one first thing. thumb.gif

I did the same thing last year with a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. Now it's a giant RSA key fob. rolleyes.gif

Surprisingly, it's saved my behind a few times in other ways when flashing custom roms to the N7.

The thing is that no Tegra 4/4i devices are announced till now. If NVidia is betting alot in the mobile market it's going to have a really hard time pushing an expensive SoC that gets outperformed from the little brother of the Snapdragon 800 wink.gif

Tegra 4 chips will get to manufacturers in mid-late Q2 2013, Tegra 4i, Q4 2013, Tegra 5 will be out in 1H 2014.

Basically Nvidia missed the May/June/July refresh window for tablets due to a silicon respin that set them back a quarter or two. Had Tegra 4 been ready a month or two ago, things might have played out differently.

Good decision. I prefer the Snapdragon over Tegra. Tegras are not battery friendly.

Phone/tablet chips are way more convoluted than desktop chips are.

Bascially the big guns right now are Tegra 3 (not so much any more), Tegra 4/4i, Snapdragon S4 Pro/600/800, and Exynos 5 Octa.

Tegra is Nvidia obviously, Snapdragon is Qualcomm and uses tech bought from ATI a while back, and Exynos is Samsung and uses PowerVR.

The chance of seeing Tegra 4 in cheap devices is very low. Seeing as Sammy, HTC, Sony and Google have shunned them this round, I wonder how much of a hit the projected sales of Tegra 4 is gonna take.

Tegra 4 is freaking powerful, yup. But how many smartphones/tablet can justify the kind of power for the price? This will be an interesting year for Nvidia's profits ...

One thing that will be neat though is to see VIzio's 10" Tegra 4 tablet which is their competition to the Nexus 10. That might get NVIDIA somewhere but not that far I imagine.
