    Most of us have seen the power of the Tegra. I have a Zune HD and I am amazed, also, some companies are adopting it for their netbooks. We know this thing is powerful, but some people do not know that it is also very efficient. It uses low power, so battery life would naturally be better. I have a feeling this tablet will have a Tegra, running a beefed up iPhone OS, and possibly and OLED screen. Thoughts?

    It's as likely as the next idea. Maybe even more, the Tegra is a good idea.

    Honestly, I'm not even sure that it exists. This rumor is old. Years old.

    I am almost sure it exists in prototype stages, I think they are contemplating whether to release it or not.

    ^ That is pretty much just your opinion. There is very little fact behind it.

    Well yeah, of you count Steve Jobs' personal tablet as 'prototype'

    I think it is very likely, have you seen how many tablets have come out recently? I think apple would like to compete in the contest for the best tablet.

    Oh course there is. Did you see the leaked meeting where a member of Apple referred to an upcoming device called the Apple Slate? Also, why would they not have a prototype? I can almost guarantee they have been working on this.

    Personally, I feel that Tegra is just a bit overhyped.
    i mean, its like back in the day when Pentium 4 first came out, people thought any computer with Pentium 4 were faster when in comparison really, Willamette, the first revision of Pentium 4, was in some cases worse than Pentium 3.
    It's nice that it's an all in one chip with GPU and CPU with quite high computing power and low power consumption but apparently it's going to be in every single new protable devices, the mysterious next version of DS, the Zune HD, now the tablet?

    Seriously, it isn't really a magic formula for a success, Apple is outperforming other smartphone not for its KickA$$ hardware, there are countless phones with better chips inside. it's the usability. unless Apple makes another ingenious UI WITH the support of OSX programs, I beleive this thing will take off no matter what hardware it has, unless it runs off a crappy Intel Atom. (I don't mean Atoms are bad, I mean the BAD ones from the Atom chips)

    Apple will never, ever use Tegra. They are using their own chips in their devices.
