Its really funny how perception works. As far as anyone in the US is concerned, most computers are made by American companies. Did you know however that the corporate PC most businesses use are from China? Knowing Lenovo is based out of China should not change our perception of the computer at our jobs but I’m sure it will make you think.
The same goes with technology in America and tech everywhere else. Most of us are used to chip makers like qualcomm, intel, AMD. These are the main players powering our computers and Androids but that doesn’t mean there aren’t others.
My current Android is the Bluproducts.com Blu Studio 5.3. The 5.3 device is powered by a mediatek chip. The stats aren’t that great on paper but it has never frozen up on me. Most people mistake it for the Samsung Galaxy Note. The difference is that the Blu houses two simcards and is unlocked. At one point I had a Tmobile and At&t simcard in here at the same time. It is a quadband phone and therefore can be used anywhere on the planet also. The only issue is that it has Android 2.3, little space and crazy competition.
3 months ago mediatek announced their new dual core chip called the MTK6577. Engadget.com and everyone else posted about it but I dont think they really cared about it. Today if you Google “mtk6577″ you will find literally thousands of foreign android phones powered by this chip. What’s the big deal?
With the new Mtk6577 Chip small time manufacturers are now able to build smartphones with android 4.0 or 4.1 without any issues. They are also able to have ips retina display quality screens with more space and more RAM also. How much does this cost us? Most of these androids at pandawill.com cost under 200.00. Are they worth it? Watch the video above. If you want one with less of a generic look, Google “Zopo”.
Is Google aware of these androids running around in Russia, China and Latin America? If my website stats can spot them I’m sure Google can happily track how many companies have adopted their babies. What about you? Are you aware of the Android Revolution?
