In contrast to X86 and ARM, the software ecosystem of MIPS is relative closed. Most MIPS SoC vendors are not willing to open the APIs of their SoCs to software developers in public. If programmers are required to hack a SoC's hardware capability to use the SoC who wants to develop software for it. To bet on Android for MIPS is a mistake because Java is not good as a language for programming in small fingerprint memory. C/C++ is fast, small, and embedded. In consumer electronics MIPS' SoC is far more better than ARM and Intel's Atom in performance/power/price at present. However MIPS SoC may be a little bit big for mobile phone and a little bit less powerful for desktop.
