Telechips TCC8803 A8-Based Chip Goes Into GPad 702
We haven’t heard much about the Telechips TCC8803 solution before – it’s based on ARM Cortex A8, it comes at frequencies of 1GHz to 1.2Ghz, and supports Android 2.2 (with upgrade possibility to 2.3) with support for up to 512MB RAM. We’ve heard much of the TCC8902 chip, one that powered the GPad 701, an Android 2.1 tab with 1080p video playback capability. The Gpad 702 is set to have the TCC8803 beneath its bonnet, and will run Android 2.2 and also match the 1080p HD video decoding capability of its predecessor – quite the upgrade. It is expected that pricing for the GPad 702 will go up. You can watch a video of the TCC8803 in action here, though it’s not in a splayed-tablet form.
