Android ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’ tablet runs on 1GHz low-power MIPS-based XBurst CPU
December 06, 2011 // Julien Happich
MIPS Technologies and Ingenic Semiconductor have launched together what the companies claim to be the world's first tablet based on Android 4.0, known as 'Ice Cream Sandwich’, retailing for less than $100 (U.S). The tablet is powered by Ingenic’s JZ4770 mobile applications processor, which leverages a MIPS-Based XBurst CPU running at 1GHz.
The new Android 4.0 tablet is available in China and online through Ainol Electronics. It will be available in the United States and other geographies within the next several months under brands from companies including Leader International Inc. and OMG Electronics Ltd. The new tablet is available with a 7 capacitive multi-touch screen. 8 and 9 form factors will be available soon. All versions include support for WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, USB 2.0, HDMI 1.3 and microSD, as well as 3D graphics with the Vivante GC860 GPU, 1080p video decoding and dual front/rear cameras. The XBurst processors power-efficient architecture provides extended battery lifethe 7 tablet draws less than 400mA during active web browsing.
We are pleased to join with MIPS to announce these breakthrough high-performance, low-power, low-cost Android 4.0 tablets. Combining the elegance of the MIPS architecture and Ingenics innovation in processor design, we are bringing a new level of processor technology to mobile devices. As we continue to collaborate with MIPS to broaden the mobile ecosystem around the legendary MIPS architecture, we anticipate even broader proliferation of our devices worldwide. We believe the mobile world will be more versatile and colorful with another processor joining in, said Qiang Liu, chairman and CEO, Ingenic Semiconductor.
The openness of Android is enabling a new level of connectedness and interaction between devices and between people across the globe. We are excited to be a part of the Android ecosystem delivering on that vision. We applaud Ingenics accomplishment in developing this new high-performance, feature-rich Android 4.0 tablet, and offering it at a price point that makes it widely accessible. We look forward to teaming with Ingenic as it continues to develop MIPS-Based mobile innovations, said Sandeep Vij, president and CEO, MIPS Technologies.All news
