Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said in a recent interview that the Tegra 3 manufacturing cost reduction methods will help OEM’s to manufacture tablets for as low as $199.
“We took out $150 in build materials, things like expensive memory. At $199, you can just about buy a tablet at a 7-Eleven.”
This is certainly good news as Amazon have Kindle Fire to show for their low cost high-end tablet. ZTE Optik have also followed in their footsteps. He continued by saying:
“Android hasn’t developed as I’d hoped. For many people, though, work is still the primary reason to have a computer. They want Windows to work well, they want Outlook to work well. A tablet running Windows 8 with Tegra could be very nice.”
He does make a very valid point as majority of people still use their computers to get their work done and Android have mighty long way to go before it can actually compete with even business-end laptops.
