NVIDIA Tablet Rumors Continue

500x_nvidia-tablet

Yesterday NVIDIA’s Jen-Hsun Huang was caught with the so called NVIDIA powered “iTablet”. Today the guys over at Engadget have clarified that there is absolutely no Apple involvement in the tablet, according to the information they received from NVIDIA. According to their tipster, the NVIDIA Tablet is sporting a Tegra prototype from an ODM and is currently running Windows CE with a resistive touchscreen, and both Android and capacitive upgrades are in the cards, as well as multiple screen sizes. But as a surprise to us all, Engadget claimed that they were told, the Tablet MIGHT be dropping on T-Mobile’s horizon around March 2010. Please take this as a grain of salt, because as of yet, nothing has been confirmed and there really isn’t any hardcore evidence supporting this theory. Don’t forget to leave your thoughts in the comments below!

  • Hi!

    I really think people are getting sick of all this…..please don’t leave! maybe MAYBE there’s a small chance that something might maybe come to tmobile…..maybe

  • JD

    Yeah, whole bunch of maybe T-Mo will get it. full-o-s–t! Nokia N900, Sony X10, Moto-Milestone, you don’t know nuthin, quit speculatin!

  • Brandon

    From what I see, Tmobile is slowly but surely going out of business. They had a terrible 3q this year.I have been with Tmobile since 2002, and they were good 2 me up until last month. They lack alot of things as a company. They will not move from 4th place at all. I would advise everyone who has Tmobile 2 leave them when their contracts r over, and go 2 another carrier that it better and reliable.

      HA! I'll believe you when you can properly spell “3G”. ; D

  • bob

    sick and tired is right! empty hopes is the business plan for T-mobile

  • Rochester

    Brandon, dude you are not very bright. are you? Sprint has been loosing about a million customer for about a year now. Are they out of business? As a matter of fact they are also loosing money whereas T-Mobile is still making money. A company that makes money does not go out of business. That is Business 101.

    • Brandon

      But Tmobile is not the company that they want 2 be because of the hacks at TmoUSA. Plus they r not expanding coverage or 3g where it needs 2 be.

  • rossi

    You cropped quite possibly the best part of this picture; Jen-Hsun Huang’s “what now, B****!” look…. Hilarious.

  • Kershon

    Gloom and doom. Gloom and doom. That’s all some of you have to say. Personally, I think T-Mobile is going to have a great year next year. There will be more areas lit with 3g and they are expanding their 2g every day. IMO this with some advanced phones which are on the horizon might just give them the boost they need. And if the rumors I have been hearing are correct, they may make some adjustments in the em and em+ plans ie bringing back my faves.

  • Brian

    Be interesting to see what they do with this.

  • Andy

    Um…it's: “with a grain of salt”. Not: “as a grain of salt.”

    @ Brandom: T-Mobile had a terrible third quarter…? Have you even looked at the numbers for Sprint…? They lost nearly half a billion dollars in profits. Now that it was I call a terrible third quarter.

    • Brandon

      But Tmobile lost 77k customers in thee 3rd quarter. The thing that holds Tmobile back is their lack of phone selection, lack of coverage, and lack of 3g coverage. People r leaving Tmobile becaue of those reasons alone. And their unlimited plans arent worth staying with them.

      • Grr

        T-Mobiles 77k net loss isn't as bad as Sprints 545k net loss. There are different reciepes for success in carriers. Most people would say Sprint's phone lineup is pretty good as well as there coverage. In reality, people are still leaving them. AT&T would be having the same issues with losing customers if it was not for IPhone exclusitivity. When I look at carriers, the only one with a strong foundation right now is Verizon. All of the others have fundamental flaws which could destroy them.

    so i played with the NOKIA Booklet 3G at BestBuy, holy shit, I wish T-Mobile would pick it up. Its coming to Verizon in like another month, but I heard a rumor a few months back from a T-Mobile rep, T was about to drop a NOKIA netbook! I doubt it, but it is a hot ass netbook, oops sorry, NOKIA considers it a laptop, but its surely a net

    I’m gonna switch to t-mo after my AT&T contract is over. They have 3g in my city and they have the cheapest 500 mins + data/text plan out of all the major carriers. + I have an unlocked phone so no more contract :D

  • Titty!

    Yay! @Harper
    As for others: seriously, it is time you get over yourself.
    If you are a Fan of VW or AT&Suck! Lol get off this page/blog, it’s a T-Mobile blog did you not know.
    Silly haters x]

    • Bill48105

      Well mentioning other cell carriers & what they have to offer especially to provide constructive criticism of TMobile to hopefully help the bigwigs steer the ship in the right direction should be welcomed but yeah it seems pointless for a hater to post on a TMo site for the sake of hearing themself talk, or type rather. ;)

      Ahahahaa I agree, that WAS the Best Part! I was cracking up fell off my chair laughing from him and his expression. lolz

      That is the best part of the picture, it really sent a message

    Excellent! The More Variety the Better.

    @Brandon:
    Hey man, go to school and take an economics class. If you are displeased w/ T-mo, then fine, go. Leave. Scram. Getdafucoutta here, we don't really care… thats a choice by the individual and I'm tired of bitch-ass whiners telling US they're leaving… why don't all you girly, limp wristed thumb suckers go and call T-mo and tell it to THEM instead seeing as they might do more for you than a bunch of other net-nerds making comments on a blog. Please, if anyone out there feels the need to write about how they're going to leave this carrier or that carrier, hit yourself in the face with a hammer first before typing.

    And Brandon, we all have opinions… but we all need to check them as well. Because you read a few BLOG articles with a negative spin, you've come to the whopping, uneducated conclusion that a whole company is going out-of-business? If I applied your logic to everything I read, that would mean Sony is already dead, Chyrsler doesn't exist, the U.S. will be a pile of dirt in 2 years, and the Statue of Liberty will be painted red with a yellow star and start charging admission. Hyperbole sucks, so don't do it.

    And on top of all that… this is a dang blog about a tablet you jerk. All I wanted to say was something about the MS Courier and then read your garbage. You didn't just take it off-topic, you took it to a bitch-topic. Thanks. (Of course, I did no better, but I don't care at this point).

      I agree. T-Mobile is hardly laying over to just die. There has not been a more aggressive network build than what has happend this year within T-Mobile. The Carolinas were added via a purchase of SunCom and a couple hundred sites were built in that area alone. Thousands of 3G sites were built nearly doubling the 3G coverage area. Hundreds of sites were built in areas where subscribers were roaming. HSPA has been launched in some areas and HSPA+ being trialed in some markets.

      Beyond that, there was a lot happening in handsets. T-Mobile was able to launch a couple handsets with the new Android operating system. People always says that T-Mobile simply follows, but in this instance they were a leader. Granted they are behind in the quality of Android handsets right now, but thats the nature of the business. Phone makers and Google have no loyalty to T-Mobile. There was no chance for T-Mobile to get any kind of exclusitiviy on this platform. HTC and Samsung are the only carriers that tend to support T-Mobile with any kind of preference. Google took the homely girl to the prom, but decided to dance with the hot redhead. It happens.

      There was a lot of bad that happened this year, but plenty of good too. From an employee inspective, I can definitely tell there is a big change in direction happening right now. Over the last year, I've heard more talk from upper management concerning data services and handsets than all of my previous years with the company combined. When other companies were launching 3G, T-Mobile still treated data services as a supplementary service. Now it is treated with every bit of importance as voice services. The phone lineup is still iffy. I like the MyTouch better than any T-Mobile phone I've owned, but the phones still need to reach up another level. I believe the phones released over the next 6-8 months will tell the story of where T-Mobile is heading.

    This is good. But personally, with how everything has been handled in the past, I try not to get excited. Nice table though. We need better pics.

    i am currently an ATT customer, but will be switching to TMo soon (still waiting for the right phone, although the CLIQ has my eye). No Contract is awesome. I live in one of TMo's 3g networks. The pricing of the Even More Plus plans (500min+txt+data) is definitely a step in the right direction.
