NVIDIA Tegra Zone coming to Android Market

CES saw a gob of tablets unveiled that will run the powerful NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor and smartphones are coming with Tegra 2 as well. The problem some users run into on Android devices is that not all of the Android phones are created equal when it comes to gaming. You only have to look to Angry Birds to know that some devices just can cut it for mobile gaming as well as others.

NVIDIA will be launching its own section on the Android Market that developers and gamers should appreciate called the Tegra Zone. The section will feature game apps that must have Tegra hardware inside the smartphone or tablet to run.

This is a good thing because as long as you have Tegra 2 inside, you know your device will run the game app. At the same time, it will give devs making high-end games a uniform platform to develop for. I wonder if the games will be skewed towards Tegra 2 only titles or if it will include any app that will run on the platform.

    Looking at the other screenshots displayed at http://www.nvidia.com/object/tegra-zone.html might be a good way to see how the Market in general will continue to evolve – so for example it looks like the YouTube videos that developers can provide a link to when publishing will appear in line with screenshots, at least in the Tegra Zone.
