Another ARM Video Decoder Being Reverse-Engineered
Phoronix: Another ARM Video Decoder Being Reverse-Engineered
While the binary wall has yet to fall with ARM SoC vendors in terms of providing open-source drivers -- namely when it comes to the graphics / multimedia blocks -- there's many active community projects for reverse-engineering these ARM blocks to provide open-source support. Here's another project that's being done for cracking the video decoder on a popular Chinese ARM SoC...
It's a little shaming, or maybe a call to arms is required, that there's no mention of the AMLogic AML8726. This SoC actually has, unfortunately unlicensed atm, Open-source Video drivers, from what I was told.
ignore where it says "1.5 GHz". Its some fair bit of "creative" mathematics that gets them to 1.5, including (but not limited to) adding the GPU frequency to the CPU frequency.
Also ignore the manufacturer name and model number. That tablet's REAL name is "LY-F1", and there are community android builds available for it.
Edit: BTW: HDMI out (mini-HDMI plug) and USB host.

Yes, I heared about manual upgrading of frequecy of tablet pc too, anyway it is wiser to go for reviewers such as below for it before buying and do not only look at the specifications. but Cheap tablet pc do saves money.
