Rockchip shows Android MID

Chinese chipmaker Rockchip has made good on its promise of introducing an Android-powered device using its CPU, with this unnamed mobile Internet device (MID). The 5-inch touchscreen concept is powered by the company's RK2808 chipset that can decode 720p high-definition videos. The hands-on videos reveal a well-rounded interface that sports an on-screen keyboard, the ability to browse the web and have multiple windows open at the same time.

Whether the device in its current form makes it to market is unknown, but similar Rockchip-powered MIDs manufactured by other companies are possible. Rockchip has promised it will release an Android-powered smartphone that uses its CPUs to compete with devices equipped with ARM chipsets sometime in October. [via Pocketables]
