"But those problems are all getting solved. The rate at which these Honeycomb Tegra 2 tablets are being improved is really stunning," says Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang.
Nvidia is one of the core players in the Android tablet segment as these tablets use Nvidia's Tegra 2 chips.
One of the biggest obstacles in the sales of Android tablets is the price factors. Apple's iPad has an edge here -- due to style statement and loyal user's blind early bird buying tendency. Android tablets may have all the goodies of the world but when someone goes to shop for a tablet cheaper iPad has no match -- no matter how inferior it is to the latest Android tablet.
So, Android players must bring the cost down without compromising on the quality and innovation.
Huang told CNET, "It's a point of sales problem. It's an expertise at retail problem. It's a marketing problem to consumers. It is a price point problem."
Motorola Xoom is priced at $599 which appears to be $100 more expensive than the low-end iPad. If Android tablets have to beat the iPad they have to take the price lower than that of the iPad and yet offer more features.
However, Huang is excited about the tablet market, "I think all of the manufacturers have now recognized that and readjusted their plans."
