Consumers can expect Tegra 3-based tablet devices priced at $199 later this year according to Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang.

According to Huang, $199 tablets are feasible if companies remove features like expensive memory.

Amazon’s Kindle Fire device, which features just 8GB of storage and lacks a camera, sells for $199 in the U.S., and managed to gain 14 percent of the tablet market in its first quarter.

Huang is also disappointed with the Android operating system. “Android hasn’t developed as I’d hoped,” he said in an interview with the New York Times.

“For many people, though, work is still the primary reason to have a computer. They want Windows to work well, they want Outlook to work well. A tablet running Windows 8 with Tegra could be very nice,” he concluded.
