At first glance, using dual-core processors in smartphones and tablets seems like nothing more than a great way to shorten an already too short battery life.  However, nVidia has cleared up a lot of the controversy in a fairly beefy whitepaper on Tegra2, their upcoming dual-core offering for smartphones and tablets.

“The ultimate conclusion, of course, is that smartphones and tablets will effectively follow in the footsteps of desktops and laptops, and that as far as NVIDIA is concerned, it intends to be a big part of making that happen.”

Details, and a link to the whitepaper, here:
