Because it's not about the hardware, it's about some sort of standardization and reference design. Think Boxee Box without the lock-in, then add Android games.

Disclaimer : I have limited knowledge on the subject of the devices being manufactured based on the all winner a10 chip.

Surely the reference design bit is primarily that all these devices are based on the all winner a10 chip and therefore the bulk of the work of porting etc is mostly taken care of once the first device is done? Granted that devices might have different periphery chips that might need drivers etc but the majority of the work would be complete. Also how far are these device manufacturers going to go from the reference designs by the chip designer?

Lots of assumptions in the above.
