Increasingly low-cost tablet are released during this period, devices of dubious performance that allows however to enjoy often del’ultima release Android but have the objective limit is incompatible with some of the applications normally available. We do not discuss here the value of that segment or not super cheap but the importance that Google is turning to the many producers and owners of tablet hardware MIPS , ensuring future compatibility of all applications. Done very interesting because it could make devices $ 100 and much less attractive.
Google has obviously begun to take seriously the issue as soon as the data were released discussing well- tablet with 1.8 million sold to date MIPS architecture , as also seen strong growth in the number of devices ready to come to market with technical solutions increasingly attractive. As the same Amit Rohatgi (principal designer MIPS architecture) said:
Google has begun to take note of the volume of sales that have affected the Android tablet based on MIPS. My first thought and work is to ensure that all features are compatible with Android on MIPS. We must necessarily receive the right support on Android and this is happening .
Most devices that integrate these solutions currently include earbud Ingenic a SoC based on a Cortex A8, was also released a version of MIPS dual-core Cortex A9 but it seems that consume much of the direct competitors of ARM chips. The wait for a real breakthrough sled then to 2013, when it is released Ingenic 64-bit SoC based on the highest performance Cortex-A15. That large manufacturers should seriously start worrying?
