NVIDIA resurfaces with new Tegra Tab 7 after going dark (TechnoBloom)
Are you a fan of NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA)? While the company may have some massive pull in the desktop market, the company is having a hard time penetrating the mobile market. Fierce competitor QUALCOMM, Inc. (NASDAQ:QCOM) seems to beat them at every turn, even taking their previous market clients away from them. The Tegra processors are definitely nothing to scoff at. It is still considered one of the best processors for mobile gaming, but unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to excel in anything else, which may have prompted OEMs to ditch even the next generation processor and get QUALCOMM, Inc. (NASDAQ:QCOM)’s Snapdragon processors instead. Many tablets and smartphones out there today are carrying Snapdragon chips. You hardly ever hear of Tegra devices anymore.

Qualcomm Quietly Dominates in Wireless Technologies (TheStreet)
Imagine trying to enter a 100-meter race where one competitor is “The Jamaican Lightening Bolt,” Usain Bolt. It doesn’t matter how many races you won back in 1998 or 2003: You’re 37 years old and you think you’re going to beat this 27-year old Olympic gold medal winner today? What are you smoking?
