MIPS rilascia il codice sorgente Jelly Bean per dispositivi MIPS

Karbonn Smart Tab

Era stata la stessa MIPS ad inizio del mese a presentare sul mercato il Karbonn Smar Tab 1, il tablet Jelly Bean più economico del mercato. Adesso una delle aziende più apprezzate nel mondo delle CPU per dispositivi low cost rilascia il codice sorgente di Jelly Bean nella sua incarnazione per la propria architettura.

 

 

Questo permetterà a tutte le aziende che stanno commercializzando prodotti MIPS low cost di aggiornare rapidamente i propri dispositivi a Jelly Bean e allo stesso tempo di accaparrarsi nuovi clienti. E adesso la parola passa ai modders, che potranno realizzare più rapidamente firmware modificati per i dispositivi MIPS.

 

Last month MIPS announced the $125 Karbonn Smart Tab 1 tablet with Jelly Bean, which runs on the MIPS-Based™ JZ4770 1.2 Ghz chip from Ingenic. Targeting the low-price market, the Karbonn tablet is the cheapest in India right now, and the only available tablet with Jelly Bean.

 

Lower-priced tablets are more marketable in emerging economies like India, given users’ preference for cheaper devices. However, given the low price, the processors that run cheap devices will usually be underpowered, too. This often results in poor user experience.

 

So if italian customers want at least a decent tablet experience with a very cheap tablet like the Karbonn Smart Tab 1, they need to make sure it has at least Jelly Bean on it. Otherwise, they might become disappointed with the tablet’s performance.

Of course there are still things like cheap displays with poor viewing angles that can reduce the enjoyment of using such a tablet, but the most frustrating would usually be processing performance.

 

MIPS’ release of the Jelly Bean source code would benefit other tablet-makers that use the MIPS platform. Developers and manufacturers can already start using custom Jelly Bean ROMs for these devices. Now more of India’s tablets can benefit from the speed and smoothness that Jelly Bean offers.
