NVIDIA will ship an Icera 4G LTE chip for an upcoming ASUS Windows RT based tablet. NVIDIA acquired Icera last year, the company's first Tegra chip with integrated LTE is expected in 2013.
Asustek Computer Inc. (ASUUY, 2357.TW) plans to release a version of its Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) Windows RT tablet that uses an Nvidia 4G Long Term Evolution chip, said Mark Aevermann, an Nvidia product manager overseeing the chip maker's notebook graphics chip business and its Windows RT push.
The tablet will use a standalone chip for cellular connectivity, as well as Nvidia's mobile application processor, Mr. Aevermann said in an interview Monday. He noted the company plans to eventually integrate its Icera cellular chips with its Tegra application processor.
Mr. Aevermann said the LTE and WiFi versions of the Asus tablet, currently dubbed the "Tablet 600," will likely be available at the same time Windows is released. It will be one of the first devices, if not the first, to use Nvidia's 4G chips from its Icera acquisition.
