CES 2012 | Nvidia and Asus reveal $249 Tegra 3 tablet

During the Nvidia press conference, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang and Asus CEO Jerry Shen unveiled an upcoming 7-inch Tegra 3 tablet with a "great camera" for only $249 to compete directly against the Kindle Fire and Nook

Nvidia revealed onstage one of the most inexpensive tablets to come with a quad-core Tegra 3 processor and Android ICS. The tablet will reportedly sell for just $249.

While details are scarce, we suspect that the tablet may be an underclocked Asus Transformer Prime. The naming has yet to be revealed. However, for only $249, we're not expecting the display quality, resolution or battery life to blow us away.

More information on the aggressively priced Asus tablet will follow.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
