Android tablet sales disappoint NVIDIA, poor app selection and Pricing blamed

With all the news of tablets this year, you will probably be aware that a majority of the Android devices are equipped with the NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 processor. Despite the demand NVIDIA has received for their chip not only in tablets but smartphones too, the CEO is still left a little disappointed and we have news of why that is.

Jen-Hsun Huang, Chief Eloquence Officer of the company has expressed his disappointment with the reception of the Android 3.0 tablets. He feels the sales of these devices are below what was expected and reckons he knows the reasons why.

According to the article by Brooke Crothers over at Cnet one of the reasons Huang came up with was the Android apps that are available at the moment are not at a good enough standard. His other reason as to why the Android tablet sales are so disappointing is the pricing of the devices.

He feels that if the Wi-Fi only models were released as the standard rather than the 4G and 3G models, we would see more shipped. Check out the full article at Cnet to find out what Huang thinks of what is being done to address these issues.

Do you think he is right about why the sales are disappointing? Let us know your thoughts below.
