Tegra Chip Problems Delay Future Tablets?

I’m going to caveat this post by saying it is April Fools Day. That said, I don’t think this info qualifies as a prank, but I would qualify it as a rumor. According to SlashGear, there is word that NVidia is having some difficulty with its Tegra chipsets and this is going to force a potential delay in Tablet devices like the Notion Ink, the ICD Ultra, and the Compal devices. Projects based on the Tegra 2, according to this source, won’t be available until August 2010.

Again, caveats abound, here, but I have to say that I wouldn’t be surprised if these rumors have some truth to them. We all know that Tablets aren’t easy to pull off for a variety of engineering reasons (unless you go the DIY Crunchpad route). From what I’m reading we’re looking at hardware and software issues and Adobe’s Flash my play a part. Here’s hoping that things get on track.
