Nvidia’s Jen-Hsun Huang CEO is betting that Google's Android software is going to become a major target for game developers which would spur development of performance oriented devices which would benefit the company. According to the WSJ, besides just selling chips, Nvidia has tried to spur interest among gamers with Shield, an unusual portable device with a display and game controllers, and a design for a tablet called the Tegra Note 7 being brought to market by hardware partners in several countries.
