We've already learned that Microsoft's Zune HD, which is coming this fall, will include an Nvidia Tegra system-on-a-chip. What you may not know is that Tegra could make its big break in the cell phone world this year, too.
At least, that's what Nvidia Mobile General manager Mike Rayfield told TheStreet.com in an interview. Rayfield said he expects Tegra to show up in a handset from "one of the top five cell-phone makers" as soon as next quarter. He wasn't willing to say which one, though.
According to a recent Gartner report, the top-five list includes Nokia, Samsung, LG, Motorola, and Sony Ericsson, in order of global market share. TheStreet.com points to Samsung and Motorola as likely candidates, since both of them are planning phones based on Google's Android platform, and Nvidia "has been working with Android." (Indeed, the Tegra systems we saw at Computex last month were running either Windows CE or Android.)
