CES: RockChip

This was a surprise and a joy. RockChip had more tablets, ereaders, PMPs, an other gadgets than both Marvell and Freescale combined. I mention those 2 companies by name because they're Rockchip's direct competition. Like Marvell, RockChip makes CPUs and can help design the entire gadget.

What they had in their booth at CES was a collection of gadgets (tablets, ereaders, PMPs, a netbook), some that were both available for license and some that were currently being sold by a partner. It was a little difficult to find just one gadget, but I did. They had a Kindle clone that is being sold by Newsy, one of their partners in China. It has a 7" LCD screen and runs Android v2.2. Oh how I want it.

That's just a taste. The rest will show up later.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
