Nvidia has good reason to be excited, but not as excited as us. It is set to demo its Windows 8 tablet, powered by the quad-core Kal-El chip. This is set to appear the Build conference. Among the demonstrators are Samsung and Microsoft. The Korea Economic Daily reports that the first Microsoft device to sport a Kal-El chip would be from Samsung. It seems Samsung does plan to make a tablet based on Windows 8.
Of course, just with any other great piece of tech, the time when this would be available to consumers is not sure. While Kal-El will be released sometime in July, Windows 8 won’t be released earlier than April of 2012. Although some still believe that the tablet from Microsoft will carry Kal-El.
Next week, Windows 8 bits will be handed out to developers. Thus, it’s not unlikely that Kal-El will power the demo tablet running Windows 8. Take note that Nvidia’s quad-core chip will power a tablet that you can actually buy before this year ends. This tablet will run on Android.
Another thing that can happen is to deliver a Windows 7 tablet that can be upgraded to Windows 8 at the Build conference. Although a Windows 8 tablet is still better.
Nvidia’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has been confident. This may be due to two tablet powerhouses in both Android and Windows 8. Who wouldn’t be optimistic? Analysts have been skeptical about Nvidia’s optimism. Let’s face it: Android tablets are not as popular as their phone counterparts.
But if Samsung is on the Windows 8 tablet bandwagon, this could mean something to consider for Android fans. With Samsung and Apple battling it out in the legal realm, a Microsoft choice might be welcomed with open arms by the public.
