    Atmel, the ARM chipset manufacturer, announced at MWC that they will be collaborating with Nvidia on a new line of large-format Tablet PC's. Interestingly, they will be using Nvidia's Tegra 2 chip along their own custom maXTouch mXT1386 touchscreen chipset. They plan to scale their devices from smartphone size all the way up to 16 inch tablets! Their design will be able to handle high-quality gaming and will be powered by the Android OS.

    Here's a quote from SlashGear,
    Wow! Earlier we wrote about the enormous Acer Iconia Smart Android Phone, coming with a 4.8 Inch screen. Now Atmel is bringing out a sixteen inch tablet PC. I suppose a giant tablet PC seems to make more sense than a 4.8 inch smartphone. What do you think?

    Beef it up and include an attachable keyboard and you have a PC-killer.
