Chinese tablets surge

Dylan,  I think the big back story here is the chip vendors selling all those ARM processors in the cheap tablets,  its not Nvidia or Qualcomm or TI,  its companies like Allwinner and they are growing fast.   History tells us they could become a force in future in the way all low end suppliers move up the innovation chain (innovators dilemma).  Its also a major threat to Intel getting a foothold in mobile;  why pay for a high end expensive chip if a cheap one does the job.  This is one to watch.  Woudl love to see EETimes interview these guys.

This will be very good news for display vendors. Is there new display technology coming for high end tablets?

Yes there is an overflow of Made in china low cost tablets around the world. The Indian Government tried a lost cost tablet around $35 for students but couldnot meet production pressures. But tablets market is huge just like smartphone.

The low cost tablets are definitely a competetion but the performance offered by the quallcom, nvidia chipsets doesnt really gets beaten by the low cost processors such as allwinner. This is with the experience that i faced from a low cost lava tablet. The product itself needs amny more quality parts than processor and display to give a great overall experience to user.

I also would like to see an article about allwinner.  I never heard of them, so it would be good to get up to speed on what they are doing.

If you look careully in most of these Chinese tablets, the chipset are made by Western or Japanese companies. Sure, they are packaged in China but Flextronics chipset has a lot of game in there.

What is a high end tablet? I have come to find that answer difficult to answer. You can have a good product with low NAND storage which pushes the prices low. It has good processor but one of the main cost factors is low, it does not make it low end. The same applies to some expensive tablets that have bloated metrics but are just expensive. Though we see this packaging as different, most of these devices have a lot in common.

How do white box tablet vendors handle storage?

Do they include 4 or 8 gb of NAND in the tablet? Or do they just put a SD slot (or something equivalent) in the tablet and let the user buy a card with whatever storage he/she wants?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
