In an interview with CNET, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has for-the-most-part admitted that his company is moving on from the smartphone market to instead focus its efforts elsewhere.

That doesn’t mean that we won’t see a Tegra superphone or tablet at some point, but NVIDIA is going to make one unless someone wants to make the “Porsche of tablets or phones.” (more…)

Details of a possibly upcoming tablet device codenamed Mocha from NVIDIA have hit the web, yet it is still unknown whether this device is merely for internal testing or public release.

The streak continues, as yet another title has launched onto Google Play as an NVIDIA SHIELD exclusive. The game is called Wonder Momo: Typhoon Booster, and while it is stated that the game will come to additional Tegra 4-powered devices in the future, this is still a pretty small percentage of Android gamers.
