Galaxy Tab 2: New Update Suggests Tegra 2 & Android Honeycomb

With 2010 coming to a close, next year, judging by reports is going to be a big year in terms of the tech world, with news of the next-generation iPhone and iPad, RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook, and also what appears to be a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. Today, when talking about the latter, Alan over at PR News has given us some updated information on the possibility of Nvidia Tegra 2 chips being included into the tablet device.

To look into this further, although not confirmed, the likelihood is that the Tegra 2 dual-core chip will be placed into the Galaxy Tab’s main processor. Sourced from Engadget via “Glen Yeung” from Citigroup, it seems that a big order has been placed for the chips from Samsung which are reported to be delivered early next year. Although we can not assume, we can only think that the huge chip order will be put towards the production of the Galaxy Tab 2 plus smartphones, a move which is paramount, as the forthcoming LG Optimus 2X is reported as being on its way.

Along with Tegra Chip 2 news, Gizmocrave.com have stated that indications are showing Google has made Tegra the “reference design” for Android 2.4 or 3.0 Honeycomb.
