Here's some info that's sure to excite... well, nearly everyone. According NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsus Huang, Tegra 3 tablets could drop to just $299 after only "a couple of quarters" on the market. In fact, he expects it. Huang didn't really give any insight as to why he thinks this, but the fact that he said it to begin with is pretty promising. Think about it -- quad-core chips and Ice Cream Sandwich for less than three hundred bones.

That's only fifty bucks more than the Nook Tablet, and at least twice the horsepower. Heck - the original Transformer is still going strong at $400 seven months after its release.

Only time will tell if Huang's prophecy is true, but we can all sit back with crossed fingers until that time.
