Back in August it was rumored that NVIDIA could be working on creating an Android tablet of their own, and now thanks to a sighting by Blog of Mobile, the alleged device has been spotted at Taiwan’s National Communications Commission. The model number of the device has been revealed to be the P1640 and while the exact specifications of the device remains unknown for now, some features include Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity which we guess is a given. Presumably the device will also be powered by NVIDIA’s own Tegra 4 SoC.
We guess the tablet sighting isn’t too surprising given that earlier this year, NVIDIA announced a new strategy in which the company would design and develop the devices themselves, but would sell them under different brands, meaning that a company like ASUS, Acer, Samsung, and etc. could buy a ready-made tablet by NVIDIA, but be able to sell it under their own branding. We guess this option would appeal to companies that do not have the scale to manufacture their own tablets or do not have the money to purchase the technology of patents that would allow them to do so. It is not clear as to when NVIDIA plans to unveil this tablet officially, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more info.
