Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang acknowledged that Google and his company are behind in the tablet race against Apple's iPad, but was wildly bullish about designs in the pipeline.
How bullish? We'll let Huang do the talking. He was speaking on Nvidia's third quarter earnings conference call. Huang was talking Tegra, Nvidia's smartphone and tablet chips.
"We're going to start building into our phone and tablet design wins. And although they're a little bit behind, the work that Google and Andy Rubin's team is doing at Google is just really amazing. I mean, this is clearly a world-class engineering team. And they're building a magical product. So I'm looking forward to the next generation of Android phones and tablets that are coming out. And I think it's going to really, really surprise people and delight consumers everywhere. And so although it's a little bit behind, I think it's going to be completely fabulous. Now it's going to take something absolutely great to compete against the iPad and the iPhone, as we all know. Because both of those devices are quite amazing devices. And so it's going to take something that is truly remarkable to compete against it. And I think Andy and his team, and all of our engineers here working with them, and all of our partners around the world working on it, are going to absolutely deliver. And so that's the second thing."
