This new Dual-core 9.7″ tablet sells now for around $200 in Shenzhen.
This company sells thousands of the Rockchip RK2918 9.7″ IPS tablet for around $150 each.
The Rockchip offices in Shenzhen are top secret, hundreds of engineers work there, I have not yet gotten the permission to film with the engineers nor to film further than the entrance, but I’ll try to get that permission again in a week or two.
This is the 5″ WVGA MT6575 phone, now selling out of Shenzhen for around $200. For now it’s a bit expensive (it should be closer to $150) perhaps because it’s not yet in full mass production.
This 7″ MiuMiu tablet design seems nice featuring the new AmLogic AML8726-MX Dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 procesor with a Mali-400 GPU.
This is the latest ARM platform from VIA, this time it’s ARM Cortex-A9, single-core up to 1.2Ghz with a Dual-core Mali-400 GPU.
This one does’t run ICS yet, but there may be an ICS firmware update for it somewhere online.
Look forward to plenty new videos from Shenzhen, and the Linaro Connect conference starts tomorrow for a week
Yesterday, I filmed 13 awesome new videos here in Shenzhen. But I booked into a little too cheap of a hotel with a 12kb/s upload internet connection so I’ll have to wait to upload those videos tomorrow when I arrive at the Linaro Connect Hong Kong conference. Please do check back. I’ve filmed the new VIA WonderMedia WM8850 ARM Cortex-A9 platform, AmLogic AML8726-MX, Rockchip RK3066, MT6575, i.MX6 Quad, I filmed an awesome new 7-minute video in a $55 7″ capacitive Boxchip A13 factory here in Shenzhen! All that and more coming up tomorrow.
Starting tomorrow, I will be video-blogging at the Linaro Connect Hong Kong conference. Where the worlds top ARM SoC software engineers meetup for a week talking about, deciding, working together on the next advancements in Linux on ARM. Let me know in the comments if you have some suggestions for what I should ask them about as they are working on the newest and latest most advanced Linux solutions on TI OMAP, Exynos, i.MX, ST-Ericsson and more!
As I am going to be video-blogging the latest advances in Linux on ARM at the Linaro Connect Hong Kong conference next week, I just landed a few days early so that I can now again video-blog the latest news out of Shenzhen. It’s appropriate for me to video-blog the latest news in Shenzhen, monthly don’t you think? In this video, I got the Zopo staff at the Zopo store on Hua Qiang Bei Shenzhen to update the firmware on my Zopo ZP100 MT6575 ARM Cortex-A9 based phone because I had a hard time figuring out how to do it looking at the Chinese-only http://bbs.zopomobile.com (see how they talk on that forum about a re-upload onto Youku of my original Zopo ZP100 video) ICS seems to be extremely smooth on the MediaTek MT6575, I’m going to ask Zopo in the days to come what they expect to do about reaching the European, US markets and worldwide with this phone. Check back in the days to come for the latest news from Shenzhen as I’m hearing about an upcoming Dual-core MediaTek MT6577 to be in an upcoming Huawei 4.5″ low cost super phone (the rumor is 1499rmb = $237), the i.MX6 is being worked on by Shenzhen based PCB design houses, Rockchip is very close to take large market share for tablets out of Shenzhen with their new Dual-core RK3066 platform. Check back on http://ARMdevices.net for a lot of new videos about those. Let me know in the comments what you would like me to film and do in Shenzhen. I have some big plans to finally do something about group buys (through reliable and trusted Shenzhen based device makers and sellers) and I plan to launch some new special features here on http://ARMdevices.net during the next days and weeks so check back.
