The future of iOS is Android based. Already 90% of "iPhones" sold in China are Android copies. Chinese Smartphone factories already sell their 4.7" "iPhone 6" for only $77 running Android, thus support for a couple million Android apps, maybe someone ports all iOS apps to Android in the future. Anyways, this is thin and as Apple would do, it does not offer a removable battery, use Apple's lightning connector instead of MicroUSB, it does have an internal MicroSD card slot though, but you need to use tiny screwdrivers to get to it. This copy configuration comes with a basic WVGA display, a very basic camera (extremely basic), and I think they cut a few more corners when itcomes to the CPU they use the entry-level MT6572 dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 with Mali-400 GPU, 512MB of RAM and a little bit of ROM. It is not guaranteed that the real iPhone 6 will look exactly like it, I think a Shenzhen smartphone designer used what he could find on the online rumor photoshop sites to make thisone. Apple is rumored to release iPhone 6" with a 4.7" and 5.5" or larger display at some point later this year. The Apple factories are around China but the main ones are in Shenzhen I think, the same city in which I found this phone for sale for $77 (470RMB Chinese money). I think Android copies own 90% of iPhone market share in China (not to mention Android probably owns 98% of all Smartphones sold in China), because most Chinese consumers don't like to and can't be paying 10x more for the official real iPhone.

Netronix puts Wacom touch on a 6.8" 1440x1080 E Ink Android e-reader based on the Freescale i.MX6 Solo Lite. Wacom is working on collaborative solutions for Wacom enabled E Ink e-readers like this one. If they do it right, I think Google should get involved, this could make it a really big new market for the E Ink based devices with touch for productive collaboration in education and enterprise. Netronix also has different other E Ink Android devices, secondary displays, large ones, and even the Netronix E Ink Smartwatch which I filmed here.

Allwinner sells the complete SoC at only $4, to that the PCB designs and factories add all the other components that make up a tablet, reaching prices below $33 for 7" tablets with 1024x600 displays when bought in bulks of more than 5000 pieces (as you can see in the Neostra video). Allwinner positions their new A33 chipset as the new entry-level performance to be expected in the entry-level Android tablets to be sold worldwide. Not only improving the multi-core performance, Allwinner has also improved power consumption through optimizing the DDR RAM system, an advanced fabrication process, optimized DVFS technology, and a unique Talking Standby mode that allows extremely low power consumption during voice calls. Mali400MP2 GPU architecture. A33 is pin-compatible with A23 dual core, offers 1080p video playback and capture, Integrated MIPI DSI controller, up to 1280x800, SmartColor display technology and an Integrated Hi-Fi audio codec.
