It allways anoys me how the whole world is ignorant to the fact that the iphone was obsoloute before it came out. Much longer before. These nvidia products arent that new but there where much older ones that still out spec the iphone. Below are links to 2 nvidia mobile products. One is a kind of personal organiser/mini pc that is slightly biger than most cell phones but outputs at 1080p!!! and the second is about a mobile phone device that outputs at 720p. These are really good high tech devices. I know of no eqivelent product that surpases these.

http://www.nvidia.com/object/tegra_600.html
http://www.nvidia.com/object/apx_2500.html

And when i said they can output at those high resoloutions i meant that there actuall screens are that resoloution and they can allso output to an external screen at high resoloutions. Nvidias products are unbeatable and they have the home advantage.

Anyways these latest versions of there products that i have shown you have been on there website for just over a year now. And soon they will ship them. Late 2008 they said. If they go on the warpath then apple has some real problems and is severly disadvantaged in terms of hardware and software.

I think you'll find that both of the links you have provided are for platform development, ie, an OEM can licence/buy the technology from nVidia and then reate a device around that specification.

munchkin is right. Tegra is a Windows Mobile platform and it's not coming into the market until someone bys the reference and builds them. These are not products.

Comparing it with an iPhone is not valid - one is in the market, selling millions, the other has yet to see a single production unit out there with those promised features...

I love the fact that this has been quantified as being exactly 5 times better than the iPhone LOL

Anything like this will be well heralded before release, commercially and in the media as the new "iPhone Killer".  Journo's these days are loving anything that might catch the eye in an article.  Just take the BlackBerry Bold and Thunder....most places I read about it were talking about them being an iPhone killers.  Android is the same, the media is hyping it up as an iPhone OS competitor because they know EVERYONE knows what the iPhone is.  The point being we will hear about these products in the media before they come out, not just randomly on the odd niche forum like Geekzone.

I'm usually quite ignorant of products which have not been designed by OEM's, have no software written for their platform, or are able to be purchased in a shop.

By the time this actually launches, they encourage developers to write software for it, software is written for it, and is able to be downloaded or purchased in a online store, and you can easily sync your music and pictures to it, the iPhone will be a generation or two ahead, with so much market lock-in that no one will want to change. Corporates won't pick it up without ActiveSync. 

You have been able to plug a iPod into a Television and watch full length blockbusters purchased online through iTunes. No one does, who would want to plug their phone into a telly and run the battery down watching a movie. This is way out of the league of normal users.

Market share is determined by more than raw performance or some measure of hardware superiority, otherwise betamax and token ring would have succeeded.

Can Nvidia negotiate deals with Hollywood to bring their content to their platform, because people want content, not a flash phone which doesn't do anything but makes calls and runs a few built in apps? Will Google allow Youtube and Maps onto their platform, or only allow it on Android?
