Thanks. That would make this race even more interesting. As technology constantly changes, how an apps processor company can keep up with it in a timely manner becomes the key.

I don't think they offer EVDO solution, neither 4G LTE at this point.

Thanks for your quick response. Very interesting. i did not know of Hong Tai Feng Electronics. I am glad I found that out. I wonder if Hong Tai Feng also offers TD-SCDMA? How about LTE?

Junko, most of Rockchip and AllWinner MPUs went into Chinese brand tablets for domestic markets and many small brands around the world through OEM/ODM service. No big brand so far.


AllWinner A31 and A31s are using a 3G chip HWM620 from Hong Tai Feng Electronics, Ltd. This chip licensed Qualcomm HSPDA technology. For example, it is implemented in our 7" phablet uPlay tablet Q7s. It's actually not just for 3G data, it's a 3G unlocked phone.

@uPlay Tablet, I have a follow-up question.

Where are AllWinner and Rockchip getting 3G modem chips? The last time I checked, they don't have their own. So, whose 3G chips are they using in their reference designs?

Understood, uPlay Tablet.I am one of the many people truly amazed by the progress these two Chinese fabless guys have made over the last few years.

Here's another question for you, though. Which "branded" OEMs are selling their tablets by integrating AP either from Rockchip or Allwinner? Do they sell them outside China?

Well, Rockchip and AllWinner are getting better with 2x speed of Apple and Samsung. Nobody heard of them two years ago, but now their latest processor are made with 28nm technology with the latest ARM platform, such as A7. You can get the latest quad-core 9.7" tablet powered by AllWinner A31s for a little over $200, only 1/3 to 1/2 of the Apple iPad 4 price. Check this out:

Performance surely is a factor- i am not sure how the Application is bundled and what i am saying for a Given Price (compare these products) with Apple which is 3x costlier.

Bottom line is cost vs quality vs performance. 9.7" Tablets from ROCK Chip also have excellent features and plays HD-Games well

I can send you the model/make if u send me your email id to have a look

I've used one HTC tablet which uses rock chip processors. I would the perfromance is terrible and decided I will never buy a product other than apple or google. But I believe Mediatek will defintely have a much better product.

Allwinner and Rock Chip have excellent chipsets and now it is no longer the dominance of US/European Chipsets in this Market.

Good to see competition coming from Asia taking it to newer heights
