Sony Preparing a Tegra 3 Android 4.0 Tablet?

by Reads (2,269)

An entry on the leaderboard of Android benchmarking app NenaMark seems to indicate that Sony is working on a Tegra 3-powered tablet.

According to the benchmark, the device was running Android 4.0.3 and shares the same 1280 x 800 screen resolution as the Sony Tablet S. More importantly, though, listed among the specs next to the benchmark numbers is the device’s GPU, which is cited as “NVIDIA Corporation/NVIDIA Tegra 3.” That seems to add up, as the performance numbers are similar to those of the ASUS Transformer Prime, another tablet running on the NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor.


Although the benchmark was performed by a user named “sony s1,” it’s hard to confirm the reports that Sony will indeed be working on a new tablet. However, it’s hard to dismiss this report because it would make sense that Sony would be using Tegra 3 on their next tablets simply because they used a Tegra 2 processor to power their current-generation tablets.
