Wondermedia owned by VIA has shown the WM8950 IC picture. It suggests that WM8950 based on A9 core will be released.
WM8505 and WM8650 from VIA are successful.
According to the analysis, VIA reduces the shipments of WM8650 to give way to WM8950.
The features of VIA chips are: cheap price, common performance and runs stably.
With the three features, tablet based on VIA solution has goods sales.
WM8950 is also based on A9 core and 800MHz frequency. The Allwinner has released the A10 which is only $5. I think WM8950 will not be more expensive than Allwinner A10.
With WM8950 chip, the tablet based on resistive screen will be less than $50.
