Here's my latest walk through the Rockchip booth featuring Chen Feng Vice President at Rockchip, walking through all the latest developments at Rockchip. Including their equation for performance per dollar per power consumption. Rockchip's Android software optimization strategies, including some talk about some of their Chromium OS and Ubuntu experiments and some little talk about what Rockchip wants to do to support the hackers that want to build on top of their platform. Please join the ARMdevice Unlisted Mailing List https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/armdevices-unlisted to suggest how this description can be improved and to help me write the next batches of titles and descriptions so that I can release more Hong Kong HKTDC trade show videos sooner!
Filmed at the HKTDC Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Spring Edition) 2013
Allwinner Technology has an enormous booth showing off some of the latest implementations of their A31, A31s and A20 chipsets.
The quad-core A31 has been available for four months and already shipped more than 1 million units. The quad-core A31s started shipping at the end of March 2013 and has the same quad-core and GPU but is geared towards smaller displays (with less memory bandwidth.) They have introduced the A20 dual-core chip, at a price point quite close to the single core.
Their booth showed more than a dozen HDMI stick and small set-top box like computers. One of the dongles was running the mobile-oriented A20 SoC, which could be poised to take over that market at low cost. The A20 is a low-cost, dual-core Cortex-A7. The A20 is pin compatible with the A10 and offers integrated support for camera sensors. This is looking like a very capable chip to power a variety of low cost devices.
The Allwinner booth was showing off a very cool gamepad built with the A31, running Android 4.1, a built-in screen with 1280 x 800 resolution, and game controllers on the left and right sides of the screen. It works like a self-contained gamepad but also serves as a game controller that can product the game on a large HDMI display. The controller has front and back facing cameras, 1GB of DDR3 and 16GB of internal storage. There was no English-name known for the device, which was developed by www.ibenx.com, one of Allwinner's many partners.
Wits-Technology was showing a development kit for Allwinner's chips Other partners showed off full-sized and micro projectors built with Allwinner chips. A mobile karaoke amplifier with built-in tablet display was built around Allwinner chips. A novel, Android-based 13.3" clamshell laptop was running the A20; faster A31 based laptops are expected later this month. Shenzhen Next-Huawen Technology Co., a design house, was showing off their tablet with keyboard dock. Allwinner says they are studying ChromeOS and also considering support for Linux based distributions like Ubuntu. The company says they have released software supporting the A31 to the open source community through a British company. Does anyone have a contact for that open source partner?

Ainol is shipping a wide range of 7", 8 9" and 10" tablets. They are a leading provider and brand name for tablets. Their staff of 600 operates a factory in Shenzhen with production capacity of 100,000 units per month. They are shipping to Chinese, European and US markets with sales currently concentrated in South Asia markets (Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, and South Korea.)
Their low-cost model starts out at $50 wholesale. The Novo 7" Venus has a screen resolution of 1280 x 800 and runs an Actions-semi quad-core A9 at a wholesale price of $95. The Novo 10" comes with an Actions quad-core A9 at a wholesale price of $145. Their 9.7" offers a Retina screen, with Allwinner's A31 Boxchip, and a wholesale price of $180. The tablets offer different industrial designs snd are engineered with various processors, but they all reportedly provide HDMI ports. Their models based on the Actions processor running Android 4.2.2 support wireless display technology called Miracast: anything displayed on the tablet's screen can be wirelessly shared with a TV connected to a receiver box.
Freelander Link-Create manufactures about 2000 tablets or/and phones per day in this factory in Shenzhen China. Freelander makes and sells a whole range of Allwinner A31, Exynos 4412, MediaTek MT6577/6589 and other tablets and smartphones. But they were just making some MediaTek and Exynos based tablets the day (week-end) I was there. Check back for more on Freelander at http://ARMdevices.net in the next few days. I'm going to try to visit their factory again also while there are more people working making some of these newer devices.
