NVIDIA netbook with Tegra on the way

NVIDIA will be releasing a netbook that sports the Tegra chip by the end of the year the company confirmed today. This will be the first time the chip has been used in anything other than the Zune HD player.

The Tegra chip sports a 720p resolution for HD video while maintaining low energy usage at 150mW. The prototype is being shown of the netbook that was built by Mobinnova, featuring an 8.9-inch screen.

Other suspected specs include a webcam, Wi-Fi, 3G and Windows CE. However, NVIDIA made a point of noting Android may be used. The pricing is expected to be the equivalent of $244 on Black Friday this year.
