Rockchip RK2918 runs Ice Cream Sandwich

Posted by Charbax on 29th November 2011

Rockchip is showing Ice Cream Sandwich running on their 1Ghz-1.2Ghz RK2918 ARM Cortex-A8 processor with the Vivante GC800 GPU. This may be one of the first demonstrations of Ice Cream Sandwich running on an ARM Cortex-A8 processor?

Thus expect some Ice Cream Sandwich firmware updates for the cool devices like the $149 Arnova 7 G2, $179 Arnova 8 G2, the $199 Arnova 10 G2 and the recently announced Arnova 9 G2 likely to be sold below $249 with a 9.7″ capacitive IPS touch screen, thus bringing nice single-core Ice Cream Sandwich tablet experiences for the low-cost market.

Arnova 9 G2, 9.7″ capacitive IPS RK2918 tablet

Posted by Charbax on 16th November 2011

Archos is releasing the new Arnova 9 G2 with a 9.7″ 4:3 capacitive IPS touch screen, the Rockchip RK2918 1Ghz processor, Gingerbread for now, but I’m guessing it’ll support Ice Cream Sandwich as soon as they’ve taken the open source and optimized it for the Rockchip processor. My guess is that the price may be around $249.
