It looks like Philips will be releasing a new line of Android tablets to consumers in China. From what we currently know the Philips tablets will have a 7 inch display and will be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. The new Philips tablet will also be running a MIPS CPU instead of the popular ARM or x86 processors in most high end tablets.
Google has stated that they have plans to increase support on the MIPS processor and will bundle support in their developers kit with a compiler for it. Now that Google has taken notice and is increasing the support we may see the MIPS processor used for more than just inexpensive low end tablets. It doesn’t sound like we will see this new Philips tablet in the US.
