Nvidia CEO: Like iPad, “Magical” Android Tablets Will “Surprise and Delight”

Apple, Steve Jobs likes to say, works very hard to “surprise and delight” its customers with “magical” products.

And so does Google, according to Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, who lauded the company’s recent tablet efforts with some Jobsian descriptives Thursday.

Discussing Nvidia’s Tegra chip during the company’s third-quarter earnings call, Huang said we’ll see Google and its partners bring some killer Android tablets to market in the months ahead.

“Although they’re a little bit behind, the work that Andy Rubin’s team is doing at Google is just really amazing,” Huang said. “I mean, this is clearly a world-class engineering team. And they’re building a magical product. So I’m looking forward to the next generation of Android phones and tablets that are coming out. And I think it’s going to really, really surprise people and delight consumers everywhere.”

A magical product…that surprises and delights. Works for Jobs, right?

Well, at least he didn’t say “magical and revolutionary.”
