NVIDIA Tegra Tab on the Way?

Within the past 24 hours there has been some pretty interesting news from NVIDIA. First came a hint of a next-gen Microsoft Surface tablet, and now comes this bit about NVIDIA's own tablet. Photos of a device called a Tegra Tab have recently appeared, and it seems to be a 7" tablet in the same vein as Google's new Nexus 7. The Tegra Tab has a slot for a stylus, a micro USB port, and a micro HDMI port (the Nexus 7 just has micro USB), but the rear looks to be a combination of the old and new Nexus 7s with the texture of the old and the horizontal orientation and camera placement of the new. Other than that, everything else is speculative. The new Nexus 7 runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor while the old ran an NVIDIA Tegra 3, so perhaps this is a way for NVIDIA to show off what the Tegra 4 is like in its own tablet. We already have the SHIELD, and maybe a Tegra Tab is next on the list (especially since a trademark filing has appeared).

Remember, take all of this with a grain of salt until something official comes along, if ever.
