NVIDIA Tegra Powers 65-Inch Touchscreen Tablet

In an arguably stunning move, a company from Turkey has started talking with education and enterprise customers for the promotion of its larger-than-usual tablet device. 

Larger than usual is a massive understatement, though, since a diagonal of 65 inches is a higher number than people would expect of an HDTV, let alone an item that was supposed to be portable.

Portability isn't even a concern here, though, and there would probably be a high temptation to just label Ardic's device as a TV and be done with it if not for the hardware and the overall shape.

Quite simply, this really is an Android tablet, with the right shape and internal components, even if, as a whole, it is scaled up.

The 65-inch LCD (liquid crystal display) is handled by the NVIDIA Tegra 2 SoC (system-on-chip) and has no issue with Full HD media playback.

Granted, that is more the merit of the SoC itself and the customizations that Ardic made to the Android OS.

Like so many other Android devices, the slate has 1 GB of RAM (random access memory) backing up the Tegra 2, as well as 16 GB of flash memory.

A microSD card exists as well, along with dual cameras and HDMI, plus WiFi and 3G connectivity.

The video demo that Ardic released actually shows the big invention doing a variety of things, like web browsing, displaying power point presentations (quite easy to watch on the big screen) and taking over a regular tablet via a dock.

Through it all, free use was made of the pinch and zoom capabilities of the touchscreen.

Multitouch is not supported, but Ardic does have a model with four touch sensors in the works, which will overcome this obstacle.

It is the Turkish company's hope that its as yet un-priced creation will be adopted by enterprises and educational venues where anyone with a 10-inch slate will be able to carry out tasks on the big screen and exhibit projects or whatever else.
