AllWinner A33 Quad Core Processor to Cost $5 With PMIC, Tablets Starting at $40

With their latest A33 SoC, Allwinner may have put a nail in the coffin of dual core application processor for tablets, as Eva Wu, AllWinner’s Marketing Manager,  has just released some pricing info, and AllWinner A33 with AXP223 PMIC (Power Management Integrated Circuit) reference price is only $4.99, paving the way for ultra cheap quad core Android tablets.

I’ve also been given some estimates for (factory) prices for different tablet’s types powered by AllWinner A33:

  • About $40 for 7″ tablets (800×480) with 1GB DDR3, and 8GB Flash.
  • About $45 for 7.85″ tablets (1024×768) with 1GB DDR3, and 8GB Flash.
  • About $50 for 8″ tablets (1280×800) with 1GB DDR3, 8GB Flash.

With four ARM Cortex A7 cores, a Mali-400MP2 GPU, and limited display resolutions, you won’t get an amazing user experience, but for a first tablet, or a kid’s tablet, it looks pretty good value. I estimate that Chinese stores may sell them for around $65 to $80 including shipping. AllWinner A33 SoC production will start in early July, so the first tablets based on this SoC should also start to become available in July.
