Here's the new snappier ARM Cortex-A8 processor from Telechips running Gingerbread software already, bringing in faster processing speed, still keeping the price below $122 for this one.
Skytex is working on getting more performance in their low cost tablets, using Freescale's new 1.2Ghz i.MX53 with better video and graphics, the Telechips 8803 ARM Cortex-A8 and the new VIA Wondermedia ARM9 with a better DSP.
Telechips is ready with their ARM Cortex-A8 and is set to be implemented in a new bunch of affordable and yet more powerful Android devices. Cool!
They use Rockchip ARM9 and Telechips ARM11 in these approximately $100 bulk priced 7"and 8" Android Tablets.
Shenzhen Canjing Electronics presents an 8" Freescale i.MX51 powered Android tablet priced at $112 in bulk. They also make a $98 Telechips based 7" tablet with an HDMI output.
Natural Sound Electronics presents a 9" Telechips ARM11 Android Tablet for $125 in bulk excluding flash memory cost, 7" capacitive Marvell with Android 2.2 for $100 in bulk.
Hopeland Digital Corporation of Shenzhen releases this NB-100 10.1" Android Laptop, powered by the ARM11 Telechips 8902 processor, 256MB RAM, 8GB nand flash, SD card slot, WiFi, it runs Android 2.1 for now, possibly upgradable. What does Google need to do to optimize Android for the Laptop? I think someone just needs to put an ARM Cortex A8 or A9 processor inside (with good fast I/O and memory, enough RAM..) and port a full Chrome browser for it (perhaps just run Chrome OS for ARM) and we'll be all set. Do you think this type of platform is soon ready to replace $300 netbooks and the $1000 MacBook Air?
Here's a 7" capacitive Android tablet by South-Korean iStation they call Zood, it comes with a 3D capable capacitive touch screen (through polarized glasses).
Here's a 5" resistive arm11 tablet from iStation.
Smit has previously presented Samsung ARM11 powered Android tablets, now they plan to release Telechips based ones with Android 2.1 support. In the coming weeks they will also be working on the next generation ARM Cortex A8 processor from Telechips as development boards are being made available. I previously posted the web's most popular Smit Android tablet videos: Smit MID-560 at IFA 2009, Smit MID-560 at CES 2010
