RK3288 powered tablets get super fast 8 second boot; To ship starting next month

Rockchip just showcased their next big thing, aka the RK3288 SoC, at the ongoing Hong Kong Electronics Fair. What caught our eye was a super-fast booting tablet; a handful seconds is all it took for the tablet to wake up to life!

Running Google Chrome OS’s open source variant, i.e., Chromium OS, the RK3288 powered device took virtually no time — 8 seconds — to boot up to usability. Although the device was only a demo unit (and not too good to look at as well) and ran the aforementioned Chromium OS, we believe it won’t take Chinese manufacturers too long to start minting Android powered ones with similar functionality.
