NVIDIA CEO Mr Jen-Hsun Huang has made his opinions of why the Android 3.0 tablets haven’t been selling as well as they maybe could be. It’s not news that pretty much every Android 3.0 Tablet thus far features the NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processors, and also, its not news that they aren’t selling out in any stores either, unlike the launch of the Apple iPad 2 (which isn’t even a dual-core Tablet).

Mr. Huang attributes the lack of sales to large pricing initially and lack of Android 3.0 compatible apps. He’s pretty much nailed it right on the head. At Apple’s iPad 2 launch, Steve Jobs did some homework and found that iPad 2 apps were in the thousands already, and Android 3.0 apps were in the hundreds. makes a difference when the latest iPad 2 is the same if not less than the intro Motorola Xoom which was the first on the market for Android 3.0 and a dual-core processor Tablet.

All is not lost however, as the NVIDIA CEO believes that the first wave of tablets launched will start to sell, but the next wave which is thinner and lighter should do quite well in sales. Also, developers have had lots of time to port apps to support Android 3.0 Honeycomb, and Google has already addressed the fragmentation issues between devices at Google I/O 2011.
