Will We See Tegra 3 Phones This Quarter, NVIDIA CEO Thinks So

It looks like you may want to hold onto your upgrade just a bit longer. According to NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsung, Tegra 3 devices being announced at Mobile World Congress will ship this quarter:

“This quarter we are expecting to ship Tegra 3 based superphones. At Mobile World Congress is when we expect to announce these devices, and we expect to announce and ship them this quarter.”

That’s a pretty bold statement, which if true, means we may see quad-core phones by the end of March! I sure hope he’s right.

Which devices will be announced remains a mystery but a couple possibles could be the HTC One X or the LG X3. While NVIDIA’s CEO may be hopeful, we all know how these things go. The only guarantee at this point is that there will be quad-core Tegra 3 phones at MWC. So if you’re a “glass half-full” kind of person, hold onto that upgrade just a bit longer and you just may have yourself one of the first quad-core smartphones.
