    NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has revealed that the company has already found 10 design wins for the upcoming quad core "Kal-El" next gen processor, leading the outspoken exec to predict that, within three years, Android tablets will be outselling Apple’s iPad. Speaking at the Reuters summit, Huang pointed to the rapid progress of Android smartphones, suggesting that the same pattern would hold true in tablets.

    Kal-El will, Huang believes, help lead that drive. NVIDIA’s next chip has apparently found a space “at least ten” devices; “we have five major phone companies and we have five major PC [manufacturers]” he revealed. Kal-El was announced back in February, promising 5x the performance of Tegra 2 as found in current Honeycomb tablets like the Motorola XOOM and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

    Will squash which iPad in three years? iPad 2 or the three years from now iPad? I don't understand why Android tablets should squash iPad, instead of living for their own successes in the market. I don't remember iPad or Apple trying to squash some product or brand, they always lead the market.
