Nvidia’s MWC invitation has already set the tone for what’s about to come. We aren’t exactly surprised, to be honest, since we’ve had a good look at their Tegra 3 offerings, since last year. Asus has already shown us the Transformer Prime, which was the world’s first quad-core tablet and also the first tablet to sport Nvidia’s Tegra 3, quad-core CPU. However, Nvidia did say that we can expect mobile phones as well to sport Tegra 3 chips, which is what we’re most excited to see.
So far, the only phone that has been doing the rounds on the Internet that we think is most likely to sport Tegra 3 is the HTC Edge. Other than a few leaked concept shots, we assume it will have a 4.7-inch screen, an 8MP shooter and of course be running Ice Cream Sandwich. Trouble is, HTC is going to be having their own press event, so if it does launch, it will most likely launch there, instead of Nvidia’s event. Nvidia has been pushing their Tegra mobile chips quite fiercely and with TI OMAP and Intel stepping up the game, the competition is only going to get more vicious. Speaking of graphics chips, the company is also readying their next-generation graphics cards, codenamed Kepler or the GTX 6xx series, which is due sometime in March, so they have a pretty busy schedule in the upcoming months. MWC is almost here and finally all the questions will be answered, so just be patient for a little longer.
