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.

ARM > MIPS.

I don't know why this stupid architecture is still around. Anything I've ever used with MIPS in it was horribly slow and buggy. You know what I'm talking about. Especially MIPS routers are a NIGHTMARE to deal with!

You're blaming the architechture for firmware issues?

From most companies I've had to deal with? Something tells me coincidence is the least likely option here. A flawed architecture (or at least, an implementation of it) seems more likely.
