    Default NVIDIA and ASUS tease 7-inch Tegra 3 tablet with ICS and $249 price tag



    ASUS and Nvidia have just announced a 7-inch, ICS-based Tegra 3 tablet that's priced ridiculously low at $250. That's just $50 more than the reigning budget champ the Kindle Fire, all the while bringing much more features to the table well worth more than the asking price. Again, this runs on Tegra 3 just like its bigger brother the Transformer Prime, offering Ice Cream Sandwich from the get-go.

    ASUS has literally waged a price war on all tablets; this will inevitably drive tablet prices down by a lot, from other Android slates to even Apple's iPad. Those specs at a budget-friendly price is an achievement, to say the least.

    This is what usually happens with new tech gear.
    Eventually, someone decides to go for volume sales instead of high priced gouging, and they transform (no pun intended) their market into a real competitive free for all.
    The consumer is the winner when this happens. I think that it's great.

    I think that HP's phenominal Tablet fire sales last year helped companies to see the light.

    I have the Kindle Fire, it's fun to use, and if you have Amazon Prime you get books Mags and movies for free. Also Razer has a gaming tablet in the works, here's a photo:

    That would be really cool. Nintendo and Sony are in trouble for portable gaming.

    The game on that thing is called FireFall?

    That's the name of a musical group from the '70's.
