Tablets: fastest growing consumer electronic device in history, faster than smart phones and netbooks.
Touch tech has made this possible, 20 million were sold the 1st year, 2nd year 60 million sold. Cross over between computing and mobile devices. This year there will be tablets designed for all walks of life, weather touch or keyboard or maybe both.
A single platform: taking all android devices into 1 platform with ?ice cream sandwich? with 250 million android devices with 750,000 activations per day this will make it easier for consumers to move from 1 android device to another.
14000 new applications come out daily; android apps will allow you to do anything you need to do right on your device. Snapseed is the #1 app for I pad now available for android. Manuel Wile senior VP of engineering of Nik software demonstrated the photo editing app. What makes the real time application work is the power of the NVidia gpu. What?s next in mobile photography? More power, thanks to the Tegra 3
Specialty store called NVidia Tegra zone, which features content rich video games. You can also use your game controllers to control the game on your tablet. Another 1st for tablet gaming is 1st person shooters in multi-player setting, games such as shadow gun at 60 fps. Jonathan ?fatality? is the #1 player 1st person shooter; he managed to destroy the whole NVidia team at Shadow Gun.
Splash top-THD app was demonstrated, this is one of the top I pad apps, #1 in many countries. I pads can remote into a PC, not as fast as PC-PC but impressive none the less.
