If all goes well, the Android tablets could be available at just $199 and $200 because the graphic card company, Nvidia is developing a low cost quad-core platform based on Tegra 3 called kai that will make possible Android tablets to be priced around $200.

Currently Apple’s lowest priced iPad is iPad 2 which comes at $399 in the US and £329 in the UK.

Rob Csonger, the Nvidia vice president said during addressing the company’s shareholder meeting last week:

Rob Csonger
Our strategy on Android is simply to enable quad-core tablets running Android Ice Cream Sandwich to be developed and brought out to market at the $199 price point. The way we do that is a platform we’ve developed called Kai. So this uses a lot of the secret sauce that’s inside Tegra 3 to allow you to develop a tablet at a much lower cost, by using a lot of innovation that we’ve developed to reduce the power that’s used by the display and use lower cost components within the tablet.
