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 also prefer MIPS ISA because it can trap on integer overflow which is nice for efficient Ada compilation.

But unfortunately nearly nobody use a language with this (nice) behaviour instead of stupid C/C++ or Java's behaviour on integer overflow, so it doesn't really matter: both ISAs are quite nice, much better than x86 anyway.
