NVIDIA: Quad-core Smartphones On the Way

NVIDIA logoNvidia announced at CES that, while quad-core smartphones have been absent from the show, they are coming very soon.

CES is not an ideal launching pad for phones as it is more focused on tablets and computers, Mike Rayfield, general manager of the mobile business unit at Nvidia, told PC World.

But, "this is the year of quad-core," Rayfield said. He said that some new models based on Nvidia's Tegra 3 processor, which has more phone design wins than its dual-core predecessor, will be previewed at the Mobile World Congress 2012 next month.

But quad-core smartphones weren't completely absent from CES. Fujitsu previewed a Tegra 3-powered smartphone.

Meanwhile, quad-core tablets have been making the rounds at CES. Asus is displaying the "world's first seven-inch quad-core tablet," the Eee Pad MemO, while ZTE and Acer are both pimping their own Tegra 3-equipped tabs.

ZTE's T-98 is also a seven-inch quad-core tab. We'll see if it gets into any scuffles with Asus over that "world's first" designation.
