While it was the newly announced A80T that made waves in recent news, Allwinner has another chipset worth caring about. The Allwinner A33 is equipped with a Cortex A7 quad core processor and Mali 400 MP2 GPU, allowing it to go head to head with most entry to mid-range devices. However, what’s so exciting about it is that Allwinner will be making these available at just $5 a pop, or roughly Php200.
No doubt we’ll be seeing these in a lot of upcoming tablets from budget Chinese ODMs, and by extension, on future local tablets. With a production cost of just $40-50, it wouldn’t be impossible to see quad core HD tablets selling here for around Php3k-4k! My bet is around 6 months. How about yours?
