Improvement in Android phone performance !!!

Look who has decided to compete with Apple. Here is a hint, it is a Microsft Ally or should I say a former one who performed chip manufacturing duties for the ZuneHD and the not so old Kin phones. Yup, you have guessed it right its Nvidia........

The chip makers have decided to part ways with the Redmondians and are now looking towards Android to embrace its upcoming Tegra 2 chip. This interesting bit of news was revealed by the Nvidia chief Jen-Hsun Huang. He sees Tegra2 as the thing that could help the mobile makers Vision of improving Android phone performance. He said:

Although it made sense for the first-generation Androids to use available phone processors, the follow-on generations of Android are really going to go after performance. So we’re going to come to market with second-generation Tegra with the third generation Android.

Here is something that will definitely have you interested. Huang considers Tegra 2 as a serious competitor for Apple A4 processor. In his words:

The bar is pretty high for all the mobile players and they need a processor that can keep up with the A4. If not be much better than what the A4 can do because they have to take on the leader in the space

From the initial look of things it seems to be a wise move one which might prove to be a competition for the Cupertinos. Looking at iPad’s current success, there is no denying that Nvidia needS to be at the best of their game.
