PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Cheap Android tablets are all over the place, and generally not any good. They often have resistive touch screens instead of capacitive ones, are slow, or have no access to the Android Market. For Ice Cream Sandwich, MIPS Technologies is trotting out its existing Honeycomb tablet - which, you guessed it, uses a MIPS processor - licensed to Ainovo. For some reason, that makes this $99 tablet with capacitive screen kind of interesting.

I used to have/use a Casio PocketPC (MIPS) back when HP and Palm were popular pocket devices. It was pretty good for its day but most software wouldn't run on it because of the processor. I will stick with ARM these days for my portable devices thank you.
