Generic Android tablets with 7-inch screens and quad-core chips that deliver decent performance could soon sell for under US$35.
Low-cost Android tablets with 64-bit processors and 4K video decoding capabilities could be around the corner, thanks to Allwinner's plan to ship its first 64-bit ARM processor by year end.
Raspberry Pi isn't planning a hardware upgrade of its popular US$25 computer anytime soon, but faster options are emerging for users attracted to such board-like devices.
Allwinner, one of the biggest providers of chips for low-cost smartphones and tablets, is stepping up its efforts to bring 4K video to handheld devices.
Qualcomm and Nvidia get most of the headlines in the mobile chip business, but two Chinese vendors are cornering the market for processors used in low-cost tablets, and in 2014 they might find their way into a product near you.
