Shenzhen Tena RK3188 HDMI Stick Factory Tour

Posted by – September 3, 2013

This videos show the process of manufacturing a RK3188 HDMI stick. The Rk3188 features lower temperatures and greater stability. Shenzhen Tena is one of the close partners of Rockchip in optimizing and implementing the latest Rockchip processors for mass market HDMI Sticks to be sold worldwide. In the tour of the factory the manufacturing as well as the test of the Android mini pc is shown such as the different machines that are used to add components. Though much of the manufacturing process is automated, some of it is done by hand in order to add specific components like the female micro usb and male HDMI out. The process of installing Android is demonstrated and it is simply done through a computer and is then tested out. Overall the manufacturing process is a mixed one involving both hands and machines.

$31 3.5″ 400×240 Spreadtrum SC6820 1Ghz ARM Cortex-A5, world’s cheapest dual-sim 2G/EDGE Android phone

Posted by – September 3, 2013

Here’s the world’s cheapest Android phone (that I can find thus far). We’re now approaching the sub-$30 pricing. Yup, $30, Android, capacitive 3.5″. Not 3G though, you get dual-sim 2G/EDGE modem at that price. If the 3.5″ screen is too small, you can get 4″ for $36 (maybe 480×320 or same 400×240, I need to check), or even 4.5″ for $45 (I think WVGA, I need to test and confirm), thus the Spreadtrum ARM Cortex-A5 system-on-chip solution with dual-sim 2G/EDGE support may compete well with the MediaTek MT6515 in that 2G/EDGE space. Let me know if you know which platform is more interesting in terms of reaching the world’s cheapest yet still usable Android phone target. We may already have reached the sub-$25 for an Android phone price now today, although it may surely be reached by the end of this year. Where can we go next year? Sub-$25 3G Android phones and sub-$15 2G Android phones? I bought 3 of these world’s cheapest phones, to use as my dual-sim roaming phone to keep my home SIMs active while I’m traveling, let me know what you would like me to test with those. The calling quality isn’t amazing, that’s one thing, but phone calls work. Wi-Fi works fine thus I can feed fast data to them from my 3G phone that does a portable hotspot if I want.

$62 4.3″ WVGA MT6572 256MB RAM, cheapest nice 4.3″ dual-sim 3G phone in the world

Posted by – September 3, 2013

MediaTek MT6572 is the new low-cost 3G smartphone platform. Here’s the cheapest Samsung Galaxy 44-mini clone that I could find, this one with just 256MB RAM and 256MB ROM, you can expand storage with MicroSD card. This store also sells a clone of the HTC One. Thus you can get pretty decent 3G dual-sim phones for around $60-70 now all over China and exporting worldwide. I’m now testing this $62 MT6572 256MB RAM phone to see if I can replace my Galaxy Nexus with it and so that I understand better what the limitations are with having only 256MB RAM/ROM on ANdroid 4.2 with the MediaTek MT6572.
