This will run Honeycomb when it’s released after around September. Malata manufactures their tablets for several brands, including ViewSonic and others.
FirstView now also makes a nice looking capacitive RK2918 based tablet:
ZiiLabs launches their ARM Cortex-A9 1.6Ghz processor, demonstrated here in their Jaguar 7″ and 10.1″ capacitive tablet reference platforms running Honeycomb smoothly. Here’s an interview with Tim Lewis director marketing and partner relations at ZiiLabs about their Stemcell’s differentiation, performance, value. Is this only the third SoC to publicly (I still had to go find their demos in their private meeting room) demonstrate Honeycomb support yet after the Tegra2 tablets and the Qualcomm Dual-core Asus Memo?

Ian Drew is the Executive VP of Marketing at ARM, here is my recording of most of his keynote at Computex 2011 in Taipei today. Sorry about the missing first 3 minutes, sorry for the slight shaking in the first few minutes (as I was trying to get to a better chair) and sorry that I don’t have direct sound recording from the microphone. I couldn’t see if Computex organizers were actually recording these speeches on official video to publish on their website, if you find another better recording of this keynote please post the video link in the comments.
Tyco Electronics introduces Acoustic Pulse Recognition (APR) touch screen technology in a reference e-ink touch screen based on Android on the Freescale i.MX508 platform.
Freescale is still showing just the i.MX51 and i.MX53 platforms at Computex, but this time, they emphasize the aspect of customizing tablets for niche uses, kind of providing for the long tail of the tablet market. Especially in the Chinese market, which could amount to 7 million tablets this year alone, Freescale has a pretty significant market share.
Qualcomm now has their dual-core super fast ARM processor in several products shown at this trade show, they demonstrate how they suggest that thekir asynchronous implementation is superior to competing Dual-core implementations, anyone got some benchmarks?
They say that they can make a 2Ghz ARM Cortex-A9 Dual-core now, but for now they are demonstrating it at lower clock speeds on an Android tablet, an Ubuntu laptop and an all-in-one Ubuntu 11.4 desktop example.
Wyse T50 is an Ubuntu Core powered thin client device, it is powered by Marvell Armada 510 (1Ghz). It features DVI, Ethernet, 4 usb host ports and an sd-card slot.
