At last week's Citi Technology Conference, Nvidia showed off their roadmap for their Tegra line of smartphone chips. The takeaway: their "Wayne" and "Grey" chipsets could give them an in with most handset makers by 2013.
The first move is clearly in the power department. The "Wayne" system-on-a-chip is a descendant of the upcoming quad-core Tegra 3, codenamed Kal-El. Not much is known about the specs, but—apart from being Batman-like?—you can expect it to outpace its Kryptonian sibling, which is already reported to be five times more powerful than the present Tegra 2. Impressive, and certainly attractive to Android manufacturers.
