Samsung confirms Tegra

A Samsung spokesperson on Friday confirmed the company is the one who was rumored to be among five top handset makers developing a handset powered by NVIDIA's Tegra processor. The chipset, which would allow HD graphics playback from the handset whether it's from movies or video games, is also linked to the upcoming Zune HD from Microsoft. As in the earlier report, the handset is most likely to debut at AT&T or T-Mobile, and be priced at around $200.

NVIDIA has been working closely with Google and its Android operating system, and Samsung has also conveniently and recently showed off an Android-powered handset, the i7500, a variation of which could end up with the Tegra chip. Other details of the handset are currently unknown.

NVIDIA is also reportedly planning on releasing a netbook powered by Tegra, the Firefly. [via LaptopMag]
