2011 The Year of NVIDIA dominating Android Superphones and tablets

The year 2011 has been a time of many advancements for Android, not least of all in the land of processors. In the United States, the Motorola ATRIX 4G was the first dual-core Android handset to hit the shelves, while the first dual-core tablet was the Motorola XOOM.

Samsung helped lead the Android tablet charge last year, with the original Galaxy Tab, a 7-inch slate which even Google admitted may have been released before the OS was ready.
