[Rumor] Amazon to deliver two tablets one to be a quad core!!

More Amazon tablet rumors have been leaked. Amazon will release two tablets on is an “entry” level tablet, codenamed “Coyote” will be based on the NVIDIA Tegra 2 platform.

The screamer is a QUAD Core codenamed “Hollywood” and will be based on the NVIDIA T30 “Kal-El” which will have a 500% performance increase over the dual-core Tegra 2.

I saw that. the code name for the quad core, Hollywood, makes you wonder if this will have it's VOD a central aspect of it's media hub.

very interesting that's for sure.

Stop trying to sell us on specs and just show us what the device can do and how well it does it.

I've seen equipment that was great on paper and lame in real world use.

iKnow what you mean. (iKid.... iKid...)


But, seriously. I agree. They can throw out all these wonderful tech-specs and promise us the moon. But, when it comes out of the gate, it's like "The Homer."

A quad core tablet sounds great, but how good could the battery life possibly be?

Today at Mobile World Congress (MWC), we demonstrated this little beauty running in an Android tablet. We not only showed that it was alive. We showed it browsing the Web, running games and streaming amazing video. This wasn’t your average amazing video. It was 1440p video content running on a 2560×1600 panel. That will enable mobile devices to output to the highest resolution monitors or tablets equipped with a 10.1-inch display with 300 DPI.

Okay rock just for you bud.

The Amazon tablet is "Magicial(tm)", and "Just works(tm)" and wait for it....
works with the Amazon "Ecosystem(tm)".

True you can have great specs and a horrible product, but there is a relationship between specs and functionality. The better the specs are on a product the more promise it has to be a feature rich product.

It will depend on the activity. The Linux kernel has step functionality built into it so it can change the processor speed based on demand. That means it will be able to power down the CPU on low use and bump it up when CPU is needed.

I've seen a couple of vague references to low power reflective screens in re: the Amazon tablets that could mean PQ/Mirasol (or could be just wishful thinking on my part). That would excite me more than any number of extra cores. Eink isn't flexible enough, AMOLED/LCD uses too much power, hopefully mirasol would be just right.

I'd like to see the tech make into a major brand's product. Amazon will support their stuff. Hard to know if a startup like Notion Ink will actually survive the whole warrantied period.
