Despite the hustle and bustle of new devices and technology at Mobile World Congress 2012, NVIDIA’s lineup of Tegra 3-optimized Android apps has been turning heads.

Mobile app developers are beginning to realize just how far they can take mobile applications when utilizing NVIDIA Tegra 3 – the world’s only 4-PLUS-1 quad-core mobile processor with the extra battery saver core that allows it to use less power than dual-core processors.

Your Operating System, web browser, games and apps all make use of Tegra 3’s four performance cores to enable a fluid, faster experience.

Here’s a quick look at just a few of the top Tegra 3 apps:

Splashtop THD from Splashtop Inc. – allows you to seamlessly stream content from your desktop onto your Tegra 3 tablet.

Photaf THD Panorama Pro from Oren Bengigi – a new photo-stitching app that allows you to combine a sequence of photos to create a panoramic view of any scenery.
