The question put up by Andi, whether Mediatek should embrace GPL (or at least offer more tools to custom ROM devs) can, in my opinon, be easily answered with “Yes”. If you buy a device, its always great to have the opportunity to fiddle around with it and change things. Theres already a lot possible, once you acquire root rights on your Android system, but if the hardware base is open too, the possibilities are even bigger.
Apple might be gearing up to launch the iPad mini 2 with rumoured quad-core processor and higher price tag, but we don’t need it as the Cube U35GT gives us similar styling, quad-core power, and the flexibility of Android at an affordable price right now!
If you have ever used a Chinese tablet then the chances are it uses one of Rockchips processor’s. We tested the Pipo M1 last year with a quad-core Rockchips CPU and it was great! And for 2013 the Chinese chip maker has the new RK3188 ready for launch.
