Nvidias's latest Android Tablet Strikes Market

A rounded, plastic tape on the iPad; that's how you would explain the Android tablet at first sight. Inside this  tablet, you see, Nvidia's Tegra 2, the heart of which is a dual core ARM Cortex A9—a chip that's a generation ahead of the silicon the iPad's A4 is based on. It's also got a gig of RAM (the iPad's biggest technical limitation now is its puny amount of RAM), two USB ports, and a front-facing camera.

Given that both of the units we handled were running just one app each—pretty snazzy looking games—it's hard to tell what it'll be like to use generally, like with the front-facing camera and how the wide screen aspect ratio feels outside of a game, but the games did feel and look great, as you'd expect from the kind of horsepower inside.The screen of this 8.1 inch tablet is capacitive for multitouchs.
