Chip maker Nvidia this week promised it will bring the price of its Tegra 3 hardware down sufficiently to see Android tablets packing the chip hit price points as low as $199 (£125).

The company's CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, insisted such budget Tegra 3 slates will be available this summer, the New York Times reports.

This perhaps adds weight to rumours that a powerful 7in Asus and Google tablet is in the works. Some say the collaboration will be announced this May.

Huang also talked up the tantalising prospect of Tegra 3-based Windows 8 tablets.

“Android hasn’t developed as I’d hoped,” he confessed.

“For many people, though, work is still the primary reason to have a computer. They want Windows to work well, they want Outlook to work well. A tablet running Windows 8 with Tegra could be very nice.” ®
