Chinese tablet makers favor Intel and MediaTek

Posted on Tuesday, April 22 2014 @ 08:32:56 CEST by


DigiTimes reports Chinese white-box tablet makers are now mainly using Intel and Mediatek for their 3G and LTE-enabled models. In both case the main reason is the pricing, Intel gives big subsidies to manufacturers that put its chips into tablets while MediaTek's solutions are priced attractively versus competing products.
In the past, low-cost solutions from chipmakers such as Allwinner Technology and Rockchip were the favorites among white-box manufacturers, but as demand for 3G and LTE tablets is picking up, white-box players have started seeking options to produce such tablets at lower costs, the sources noted.

...

Intel's 7-inch tablet solution is currently priced at about US$20 and the 7.85-inch one around US$27. With a LTE module, which raises the overall cost by about US$20, a 7-inch Intel-based white-box tablet currently has an ex-factory price of about US$50, the sources detailed.

A 3G white-box tablet using MediaTek's solution has a competitive ex-factory price of US$39.9, the sources added.
