    Opensource has ten times more to accomplish, and does not even have resources behind comparable to what amd blob has.
    But Im not going to discuss this with you, because 1) I love opensource 2) opensource is not usable for me now, only on blob 3) I dont want to promote blob, see 1 4) amd does not really care for opensource the way you want them to

    The Microsoft KIN phone uses a tegra chip. For a total MS blunder, it's hardware is pretty good, just horrid software and complete mismanagement sunk the product.

    Microsoft also used the original Tegra in the Zune HD.
