Assuming the world does not end next year, then we certainly want to hold Texas Instruments to their word – that is, they claim they will be able to churn out a chip for tablet devices that are full well capable of stretching the tablet’s battery to last the entire day. Yes sir, that means you can have your Angry Birds session (which should be in its 30th expansion pack by then), reply emails, make video calls, send text messages, and browse the Internet – from morning all the way until you reach home, without having to juice up the battery in between.
Brian Carlson of Texas Instruments claim that their 2013 plans would include the successor to the OMAP 5 chip, where it will undergo the 20nm manufacturing process which should enable true all day computing. Of course, the definition of “all day true computing” varies from one person to the next, but Brian claims that you can actually expect the battery life to last right from the start of the day, all the way until the end when you’re ready to get some shuteye.
