    Samsung Galaxy S2, only the best sold high end android smartphone of 2011

    Other than that, check out our initial wiki pages at http://limadriver.branchable.com/, still waiting to for limadriver.org to resolve to that.

        You can get really crappy telechips 7" tablets with resistive touchscreen for about 80EUR. For a useful tablet, with a 7" capacitive display (which plays a neat angry birds), with a reasonably fast amlogic or allwinner SoC, you pay about 150EUR. This is the hardware i am currently working with myself.

            Samsung Galaxy Note has Mali 400. Its a new 5.3 inch phone/tablet hybrid and its getting very popular. It has 1280x800 samoled display and 1.4GHz dualcore Exynox CPU.

              Yep, I was going to point that out. Performance is pretty good for a phone (last couple charts on http://www.anandtech.com/show/5133/g...al-performance), but doesn't match Apple.

                libv: what does lima consist of? just userspace or is there a kernel component as well?

                  If I had to guess... I'd say yes. Somebody else noticed it...
