E-shine is provider of components to other companies who want to create their own devices. They ship around $500 million worth of components every year. The don’t really make their own and rely mostly on the sale of components. They provide components for companies like Panasonic and touchpads for Synaptics. For more Solutions Demonstrated Tablet LCDs. Solutions for Rockchip processors. To produce a Rk3188 tablet with 16gb of ROM, 2gb of RAM, and a 9.7″ retina display would cost around 166 USD for 1,000 units. Dock-able Keyboard Tablet from go-clever 5″ Galaxy Note like device with a 960×640 resolution. The device uses an unspecified Qualcomm processor and 1gb of ram. The device appears to have a stylus. The price is 137 USD. An unspecified 8″ tablet with a Rockchip rk3066 which is soon to be upgrade to a Rockchip RK3028 next month. A Rockchip tablet with Morgan Touch technology was shown. Morgan Touch is an active pen technology similar to Wacom’s technology that is not only cheaper but more precise. I am pen user so hopefully this technology finds its way into more tablets. The solution can be added to Android tablets for an additional 25 dollars. For those interested in Morgan Touch go to their website http://www.morgan-touch.com/ For other E-shine solutions they can be found at http://e-shine.cn

MediaTek presents what they claim to be today’s fastest Tablet SoC, using Dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 with Dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 in big.LITTLE configuration with a new SGX6 based GPU.
How soon we’ll see MT8135 based tablets on the market? And does MediaTek also prepare a big.LITTLE for smartphones? I don’t know.
MediaTek introduces industry leading tablet SoC -MT8135, which integrates ARM’s big.LITTLE™ processing subsystem and a PowerVR™ Series6 GPU from Imagination Technologies.
MediaTek MT8135 fulfills the most demanding CPU and GPU usage scenarios, whether it is heavy web downloading, hardcore gaming, high-quality premium video viewing or rigorous multitasking, while maintaining the utmost power efficiency.
In this video, you’ll see how MediaTek MT8135 outperforms today’s tablet solutions.
Here’s Ubuntu OS for phones built on Android BSP (Board Support Package). They can bring on various phone devices in very short time. Ubuntu OS makes playing videos easier. Ubuntu User interface is very sleek. Through Preview window you can see the videos while playing games or working on any other app. Ubuntu OS runs on different engine no need of engines like JAVA, Dolby. Ubuntu applications written by CUTE support HTML5. It’s different software architecture. Ubuntu provides complete ecosystem also provides SDK system for developers they can use CUTE create their own apps. So that Simple app can run both PC and Phone. Ubuntu OS runs on high end phones, require powerful CPU capable to run both Android and Ubuntu OS at the same time. To do this optimization required of phone feature complete like you can write SMS from desktop in all languages. Users don’t need to have other laptop or PC to communicate between Android and Ubuntu. It’s an Unique experience run Both OS on One Phone. For now Android apps can’t run on Ubuntu. It is possible only after optimzing aspects like graphics. Android apps for Touch. but running CUTE apps is different thing.They can easily Ubantu open source can be write on Android code.there is lot of room for optimization like display performance VD development finally putting them together is easy concept. Ubuntu lowered the basic effort to put Ubuntu on Android. BSP drivers are almost same so effort for OEM is easier to adapt Ubuntu on their hardware. Last year Ubuntu was on OMAP4. Now on qualcomm S4. Wrote with “Ubuntu control app”. User can control Ubuntu session by phone only. If click on shut down Ubuntu control app the phone still can work on Android.
To run Ubuntu 1GB RAM. 1.5Ghz Dualcore CPU are minimum requirements. Aiming to different market segment.
People who think that Android is not sufficient they can turn on Ubuntu. Android is designed for small phones where as Ubuntu they design for large screens. Legacy of Linux is for big screens and multitasking. The main focus is running Ubuntu on multiple device like phone, tablet, TV and many more.

MediaTek MT6592 is announced, as far as I understand it’s 8-cores of ARM Cortex-A7 with ARM Mali graphics?
So this MediaTek MT6592 does not use big.LITTLE combining ARM Cortex-A15 and A7 but only uses 8 ARM Cortex-A7 cores?
Basically, the MT6592 and the MT6588 will be the new high-end offers, the MT6589 becomes the new mid-end and the MT6582 and MT6572 will be the company’s low-end chips.
Just as its predecessors The MediaTek MTK MT6592 is built on ARM A7 architecture and can be clocked from 1.7 to 2.0 GHz. This pure 8 core processor chipset supports full HD recording and playback.
According to some leaked benchmarks this MT6592 SoC supposedly performs quite fast?
This may be MediaTek’s processor for Android 5.0 to be released.
