One of us is misreading The Half Elf. I think he meant making tablets, not making SoCs.

Tegra is obviously already a big deal, but I don't see NVIDIA ever go from making Tegra and selling it to OEMs to making their own tablets. That sounds like a death sentence. It requires an enormous competency investment they don't have, enormous marketing and distribution they don't have, and risks alienating the OEMs and pushing them to alternatives, particularly if they are aggressive with pricing.

Most companies that sell mostly to OEMs then try to get into their own direct to consumer end up getting whacked hard in the face.

Ah, I see. They have just announced the Project Shield thing, but that looks more like a concept device to promote Tegra. I certainly hope for their sake that they aren't banking on it being a big seller if it does go into full production. I agree that they should stay out of the consumer market.
