Rockchip 3288-Based Tablets Months Away

PadNews states that samples of the new Rockchip 3288 CPU should be making their way to tablet makers in March and we can expect manufacturing to begin in May [Google Translate].

Given the way things work in China, early hype for 3288-based tablets should begin in April. And nothing will ship to customers until June or even July.

The consensus is that the 3288 will be used first in higher-priced large-screen tablets, 9.7- and 10.1-inch. Supplies of Retina-class displays are readily available for those. It could be a while before we see a Retina-class iPad Mini clone with the 3288 — unless Five Technology does it.
