Pleasant or bad news? Today, we will focus on a rumor that evokes a rebranding for the architecture of the next generation of Nexus 7.
According to Michael McConnell, an analyst with Pacific Crest, Google may choose to move to a different brand architecture to Nexus 7 today. To believe speculation, Nvidia should be set aside in favor of Qualcomm, which simply would advance with a component at a price much more attractive in comparison to the next generation of Tegra 4 which actually cost much more expensive to unit at its distribution.
More concretely, the architecture of which should be the question would grind quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 which offers the advantage of a multi-natively compatible with 3G and 4G mobile networks for cheap.
If this is true, the loss of a position as important in a tablet that sells as well as the Nexus 7, could reduce revenues Nvidia 200 to 250 million. It is ultimately a good war since both of them are still two big competitors are equal in the field of mobility, and then Nvidia also occupies an important place in the notebook market, domestic and other sectors.
To conclude, it is said that the next generation of Nexus 7 will be launched in the second quarter of 2013. Obviously, all this is still only assumptions that are still logical, but who have no been confirmed by official sources, but could follow the movement of low-cost terminals such as the latest Nexus.
