I just returned a Pipo 8" tablet. Real junk. Advertised as global 3G. Oops, not including North America. Battery life sucked – lasted a few days in standby – with ALL radios off. Less than a day with WiFi enabled. Etc.

I am wondering when we would see products from this or if we will see them here in the US? It makes a lot of sense to leverage a working SOC and I like the quad/dual core options. Looks like they will have a high and low end offering maybe even more various with differences in memory and storage features.

indicates that the licensing cost itself of the GPU cores might be low. If you can pay royalty, then not much of upfront licensing costs involved. Is a good model IMO.
