Nvidia: Kal-El quad core tablets will hit this year Nvidia's CEO Jen-Hsun Huang says the company will power the first quad-core tablets on the market.
Confirming a leaked roadmap from earlier this year, Huang says Nvidia will be the first, beating out heated rivals like Qualcomm, whose quad-core Snapdragon processors will only go into production later this year.

Says the CEO (via Forbes):

We’re the only people seriously on the dance floor with Qualcomm. We’re really the only two active players [in the high-end mobile processor market].


While there will be quad-core tablets before Christmas, Huang seemed much less sure about its availability for smartphones by the end of the year.

Huang says Nvidia has 70 percent share of the Android tablet market and 50 percent of what the CEO calls the "superphone" market.
