Earlier this week, Nvidia has disclosed that their Icera 410 LTE modem has been approved for AT&T’s network. This is a big step forward for Nvidia’s Tegra chips, which so far... have lacked any sort of integration with LTE chips. It’s too bad that it took Nvidia so long, because Qualcomm took advantage of their edge in this area, and sold more S4 chips with integrated LT...

Most chip makers have long realized that, in the future, they are going to need to integrate LTE and 3G modems with their SoCs if they want to be competitive. This brings down the price of components,... which is a benefit to potential customers and it also reduces time-to-market.

We’ve seen a slew of low-cost Android 4.0 tablets flooding the market courtesy of some Chinese manufacturers. These devices, that fall in the $100 – $250 price range, are quite impressive... in their own right, boasting impressive builds and form factors. The low-cost is thanks to compromises in display resolution, RAM (generally 512MB), cameras, processors (generally single core processors, or 1G...

Nintendo may have the plumbing power of Mario on its side, but Sega has the cooler and faster Sonic the Hedgehog, one of the world’s most celebrated game icons.

Making the jump from... console to the Android platform seemed to take forever, but when Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode I finally made it to Android, the game was well worth the wait. It’s no wonder why the sequel of the...

Feeling the pinch from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4, Samsung’s Exynos 4412, and other SoC debutants, Nvidia plans to follow up its quad-core Tegra 3 processor with a Tegra 3+ this year. The... news was revealed by Nvidia general manager Mike Rayfield during a tech conference in Seattle. Speaking to PC World, Rayfield stated that the Tegra 3+ will be “a pretty significant bump” from its...

Once upon a time, mobile phones used to weigh a couple of pounds (literally), feature large antennas, and very basic designs, and were used primarily to make and receive voice calls. Today’s... smartphones are as much gaming machines and music players as they are devices for managing calls. However, mobile gaming is still far off from the quality of console or PC games and you might think that...

NVIDIA is one of the most well-known, respected and established names in the industry of graphics processing manufacturing. While this may be true, the US-based company has struggled to gain... profitability due to a variety of environmental and economic events of the past few years.
