PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Microsoft has now more or less given out every possible detail of its next-generation portable media player, the Zune HD. The really interesting part of this device is not the software or its competitiveness with the iPod Touch - no, it's the hardware inside it. This is the first mass-market NVIDIA Tegra-based device.

Maybe i am spoiled with my Nokia XM 5800 having 640x360 but for this 'HD' device the resolution isn't all that impressive, 480x272 on a screen thats alot bigger than the nokia. It's even less than the iPhone has.

The Tegra chip on the other hand, especially the desktop version, is a breath of fresh air on the 3d/hd-video scene.

Perhaps...
I wonder why we're not seeing more of the OMAP35xx series out there yet. Maybe it is. Tegra cpu wise is very weak. I just has a very very specialized co processor with it. Same could be said about OMAP with the neon simd unit, though.

Well, it's quite expensive, isn't it? I've seen many hobbyist projects using this processor, though.

Edit: I'm talking of the OMAP3530/25!
