Who told you ARM is a better processor for Mobile. We have a long way to go for IMT-A. 1Gbps we need custom chip. ARM can not cut it.

These cheap phone and tablet announcements for huge Indian market come and go...after you scrub the surface you find out that they are cheaper but less reliable with lower performance hence typically not leading to anything meaningful...Kris

Wow wow MIPS wins another scrub account. Obviously they can't afford an ARM license so they go cheap. All I ever see is cheap wins for MIPS. Snore. Yawn. What happened to MIPS being sold? Who is the buyer? Nobody cares!

I guess the goal of the $100 computer might become a reality in that part of the world. I wonder what this means for MIPS though - the volumes of these tablets have to be in the less than 1% range - does it even matter from a business point of view?
