NVIDIA, Verizon Wireless Demo HD Internet Tablet

At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NVIDIA and the Verizon Wireless LTE Innovation Center are demonstrating a full 1080p HD touchscreen tablet.
The demonstration uses an NVIDIA Tegra-powered Ultra tablet, designed by Innovative Converged Devices (ICD) utilizing the ultra-broad bandwidth of a Motorola 4G wireless modem, operating over a pre-commercial Verizon Wireless LTE network.

NVIDIA said its Tegra mobile processors are able to stream uncompromised, full HD video, such as streaming YouTube HD, for hours on a single charge.

"Verizon Wireless' planned LTE network will deliver what consumers demand - bandwidth for a full HD web experience. This coupled with our Tegra processor will deliver amazing streaming content, all on the go," stated Brian Higgins, Executive Director, LTE Ecosystem Development at Verizon Wireless.
