Tablet priced under US$100 with Android 4.0 surfaces

Agam Shah | Dec. 6, 2011
A first-of-its-kind tablet with Google's Android 4.0 priced under US$100 is now available in China, and will reach other countries soon, according to companies that helped build the device.

The original development of Android 4.0 revolved around ARM processors, but Intel and MIPS quickly ported the OS to work on their processors after Google released the source code last month.

MIPS dominates the embedded market, with processors found in set-top boxes, TV sets and other embedded devices. The company believes the smartphones and tablets are a natural extension from the embedded market. The company's processors are also being used by the Chinese government in chip designs.
