Allwinner A10 : Is XBMC ported to MALI-400MP ?
Why spend too much time on Allwinner then..? There's a lot of different capable ARM SOCs out there, and a lot of very interesting products in the pipe, like the Freescale i.MX6 series (Q3/Q4). Starting at around $11 for a single core cortex A9 @ 1GHz up to dual and quad cores at 1.2GHz with a very capable VPU and GPU. The support and quality of drivers I assume should be better.

And what kind of track record does Allwinner have when it comes to availability? That device is meant for quick changing consumer devices. Is it still here in a year or two even..? And what about getting hold of it? Only for large volume oems probably. What guarantees do the community have that their time spent on the Allwinner will be of much use next year..?

ARM socs have only recently gained enough power and cost at a level making them interesting for other applications than cell phones etc, and we're only seeing the start of it. In 2013 we will see 2GHz quad core A15s... Then we start talking
