According to NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, no matter how hard Samsung might try to promote the Galaxy Tab as a tablet in its form, shape and functionality, it is nothing more than an overstretched smartphone.
“A tablet is not a large phone,” said Huang, while taking dig at manufacturers with the tendency to adopt a smartphone OS that is stretched to render service in a tablet environment. He feels this isn’t the right way to build what can be called a true tablet PC.
The NVIDIA boss is also skeptical about the current trend of launching tablets based on the Android OS (which is still not ready to perform in a tablet platform). However, he was quick to point out that when the proper Android version that is suited to deliver optimum performance in a tablet device comes along, his company will have matching hardware to make the most of the situation.
“Our tablet and phone business is going to ramp. And it’s going to ramp hard,” is what he said.
