Nvdia had announced its Kai platform for pushing out affordable quad-core tablets running Google Android operating system. Now the company aims to bring affordable quad-core smartphones by the year end.
Chinese website NewDrivers reported that Nvidia plans to bring the Kai platform for the smartphone segment as well and first lot of devices can be expected by the end of this year.
Recent launch of the Google Nexus 7 tablet made by Asus and housing a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 mobile processor initiated the Kai Platform plans for tablets. Now Nvidia plans to do something similar with the smartphone segment by introducing affordable quad-core Android based devices.
Just like the tablets, Nvidia will employ similar strategy with the smartphones – quad-core mobile processor clubbed with other low-power and low-cost hardware. No further details were spilled on the handset makers working closely with NVIDIA on this project. We can anticipate ZTE and Huawei to be the first ones to push out the quad-core Tegra 3 based affordable smartphones.
Nvidia aims at pushing low cost quad-core smartphones that can run great software in terms of apps and games. In a way, the company aims to compete heavily with the existing players – Qualcomm, ST Ericsson and MediaTek to grab enough marketshare.
