There seems to be a lot of HTC rumors lately, especially with the flagship HTC M7 that’s speculated for a 2013 arrival, and the latest rumor suggests that HTC may be edging out competitors to be the first out of the gate with partner NVIDIA’s latest silicon in the form of the Tegra 4 chipset....

News was also reported in Phone Arena.
your analysis has already been proven wrong, so I am not sure why you keep on going down that road?
nvda will never sell to the hottest dynamic duo of samsung and samsung. #3 is cheap only, amzn won't use nvda unless it's no margin deal. #4 is for spreading the wealth. So how many of the 100m tablet TAM is available to nvda now??
huge difference between $300 tab and $500 tab. The $300 Nexus sells tons. $500 tabs don't go anywhere. You are telling me they are the same for nvda???
you funny guy, you must be best's kissing cousin.
When Ballmer first announced the SurfaceRT, everybody said so what?? So what's the price?
Like I said, when Baller announced a $600 SurfaceRT, it was lights out - lights out winRT now, lights out on msft in the long run, they are going to go irrelevant.
nvda? Jen will waste every last penny in this stupid venture until nvda gets sold off for nothing on the $. He will still score a couple of headlines here and there to keep his ego going, but that's about it. For shareholders, there will be nothing.
Why do you think Tablet processors are a stupid venture? IDC forecasts Android tablet sales to double next year after doubling this year. IDC also believe Windows tablet sales to double next year after doubling this year. It's not unreasonable to expect Tegra processor sales to double next year too is it?
Remember a Tegra 3 tablet sold for $200 is $20 in Tegra revenue. A Tegra 3 Tablet sold for $500 is $20 in Tegra Revenue. Who cares, let's just sell to everyone says Jensen
OT: Looking forward to my Nvidia dividend on the14th. Wonder how much will come from some Shortie like you? LOL
This is Not "news", right Master?
Like you taught us clones in Clone Class -- "The News is Factual."
And it comes from Factual places.
Like the Wall Street Journal, or Bloomberg or Reuters or AppleInsider.
Reputable news places like that.
But this "news" posted by decepticon ibexx88 is not "news" at all.
Oh no no no.
First, look at the headline:
"HTC to be the first with NVIDIA Tegra 4 phone?"
That question mark (?) is a tell-tail sign that it's Not really news.
But somebody's made-up "news".
And then look at the lead-in sentence:
"There seems to be a lot of HTC RUMORS lately... and the latest RUMOR suggests
that HTC may try to do something or other with the LTE-less Tegra #4."
The use of the word RUMOR twice (2X) in the same sentence is a slam-dunk
clue that it's not really "news", right Master?
And us clones Know what to do with ibbey's little made-up Rumors.
Yes we do.
Twenty-Six (26) thumbs down to rumors posted by decepticon ibexx88.
You've taught us well, Master.
Tegra no match for ARM A5 no wonder MSFT is switching. Nvda behind the curve, again.
What's an A15 you ask? That's the next chip design -- officially the Cortex A15 -- from tablet and smartphone chip design powerhouse ARM.
Think of it this way: Four A15s are faster than the four Nvidia Tegra 3 Cortex-A9s now found in the Asus Transformer Prime. And the Transformer Prime is already pretty fast for a tablet. (Technically, Nvidia calls its quad-core Tegra 4-Plus-1 because there's a fifth battery-life-friendly core for less-demanding tasks.)
Someone is perpetuating a lie here . . there is no support for Microsoft switching from Tegra. They have setup a whole lineup of manufacturers to use ARM and Qualcomm's was delayed due to their Snapdragon chip not meeting certification requirements yet. They will have a Windows ARM based tablet coming out but it does NOT mean Tegra is out of the Surface at all. This misinformation is just the kind of thing that deserves litigation in my opinion.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
