The rest of the ARM world isnt compatible with itself. Or is Mali compatible with PowerVR? Moot point.
Shorter battery life. compared to what? An HP airlife 100 has longer battery life, but it also has a soc that is 2-3x slower. And it comes with android 1.6 (have fun with that on a netbook). And you cant buy it. So what other netbook has 6-8 hour battery life and weighs 870 gr?
As for HD decode. If for some weird reason I would fancy high profile h264 playback, weighing in over 50GB per movie on a portable device without harddrive and a screen thats only 600 pixels high, then what device would you suggest?
Two of those are REALLY shaky now.
I imagine anything thats not a phone and based on android looks shaky right now. No android market. I could stop there. Barely working flash. No point and click interface. No scrolling. No printing. No office apps. It makes windows CE look good.
Thing is though, just about every new tablet or smartbook that pops up seems to be designed around tegra, and close to none are based on omap4 or u8500. Or moorestown. If tegra is only half as bad as you keep saying, why is that?
