Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has opined that Android – rather than Windows – will power the majority of next-gen tablet devices.
“Windows is too big and it’s too full featured for smartbooks and tablets. [But] the good news is that we finally have an operating system to unite behind,” Huang told PC World.
However, Huang emphasized that Google would have to tweak its mobile OS so that it could better power a new generation of tablet computers.
“Andy Rubin and his team [at Google] know exactly where the industry needs to go,” said Huang.
“Android started out as a phone but it’s not lost on them that the tablet is going to be very important and that the [OS] has to evolve and be enhanced in certain capabilities, in order to be a good tablet operating system.”
