NVIDIA's Tegra APX 2600 chipset has made an appearance in the flesh at Mobile World Congress, and this time, it's running Google Android on a proof-of-concept unit, and on another, delivering 1080p video with 10 hours of battery life to boot, reports Engadget.

Impressive stuff.

It reportedly took NVIDIA just a few weeks to port Android to the capacitive touchscreen device. Additionally, the Android-running Yulong N8 and IAC S2 Tegra APX phones also made a cameo in non-working prototype form. Bottom line? This chipset isn't just for MIDs.
