Makes complete sense to me why the sales of Tegra chips are down. You release the Tegra 3 in November and it's a fairly substantial improvement over Tegra 2. Anyone who follows tech at all will be holding out for a Tegra 3 chip in the device they want (smartphone/tablet), buying Tegra 2 at this point is just buying obsolete tech
very nice and i hope many will have quad core but pls somebody tell me what will we see better with quad core in a mobile phone? i know about power saving ..... but anything else?i love phones and technology, my last 3 phones : iphone4, galaxy s2 and now i love my soon to be old tech galaxy nexus . and it helps the graphics but something else???

That would be a good idea. But you need to have some microscope, tweezers, test benches, lupes, solder station, maggi lamps, testings softwares.
Ohh!, by the way, you need to have at least around U$40,000.00 money to acquire all the stuff I have mentioned.
well, why dont smart phones need 4 cores ?
do it drain the mobile from power if you disable the 4 cores and run only on the 5th core im pritty sure its minimal.
i got money and i like some power so bring me 4 cores : )
The Novelty of Tegra 3 has started to wear off, when first talked about it was leaps and bounds ahead of anything else available on the market and since its seemingly taken so long to get in the hands of mfg's, others have had the chance to catch up, announce/release their own quads. That being said, i would still be happy to upgrade my dual core 1.2 with a chip like this.
I actually wish someone would make a "hybrid" phone, about the size of the samsung galaxy player but with a phone in it, maybe even a half inch bigger (5" - 5.5") which for me would be perfect size, bigger to alleviate my desires for a secondary tablet so i can have it all in a single device! I dont mind a little more heft to the device so make a battery worth having cover the majority of the real-estate of the back of this thing!
