Eken launches Allwinner A33 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 Tablet and more

Posted by – July 27, 2014

I filmed Eken many times and on January 11th 2012 at their booth it was the first time I heard about Allwinner, Eken was the first Tablet company I had seen implementing the Allwinner A10. This probably means that Eken has a close relationship with Allwinner to always implement their newest processors early into their tablet manufacturing.
