This is good news for MIPS, who kind of missed the mobile bus. They now have an oppurtunity to come otu with viable tablet options which are not ARM based. But it with the Android+ARM combo going full speed ahead I feel it will not make much impact. Though they surely have got a shot at non-mobile space with Android but Android is raw, it needs a lot of addons and polising to make it slick and user friendly.

MIPS Technologies is among the lucky few. Good luck on them and that will be the rare opportunity for them to stay ahead of competition.

Re-begun, the processors war has. Back in the day, we had personal computers running off of the 8080, Z80, 6502, 6800, 6809, 1802, TMS9900. Some were pretty obscure with limited adoption and limited or no follow-ons. A decade or so later, it was pretty much down to 680x0 (later PowerPC) and a few flavors of x86. Once Apple moved to x86, the war had been won. It was the x86, for the most part Intel and AMD. We still have the two x86 options, but ARM is rolling in and now MIPS. Who's next?

I though Android only ran on ARM! Well, this is good! Android still catching up! Apple has taken number 1 spot in revenue. This is a tough guy, but it would seem as if it´s Apple against all others as the Android OS can be found in different manufacturer´s phones like Samsung, HTC, Motorola etc. I think it would be a little harder to account the amount of Android sales. I´ll start checking the comparison between MIPS and ARM. Though ARM is stronger I think.
