Back in November, Jen-Hsun Huang was spotted with a mystery tablet based on the company's Tegra chipset. Nvidia said it was a prototype from an ODM called ICD that's being "actively" shopped to carriers around the world.
Well ICD is at CES this week and the company had the tablet on hand to show off to attendees. Specs-wise you're looking at a 15-inch display, Nvidia's Tegra processor, boasts full 1080p video playback and runs on Android.
ICD is partnering up with T-Mobile UK to offer this device as a "family hub tablet" designed primarily to sit in the kitchen and offer one-touch access to calendars and the like. The tablet can make calls and will be accessible via anything web enabled, meaning the entire family can connect to it via their cell phones, work computers, PCs or laptops. It also includes a full web browser, on-demand TV, video chat and games.
It's an odd way to market such a beautiful piece of equipment. Granted, without a carrier on board to subsidize such a device, the cost would probably be too high to appeal to a broad audience so perhaps it's necessary to have the "family organizer" angle to keep T-Mobile happy.
Release is set for later this year. No word on a U.S. release.
