Notable Coverage Mentions
“….MediaTek’s new mobile phone platform should be popular among operators in developed markets like Europe, because many operators, poised to drive the data-centric mobile devices in their networks, are suffering from the rising cost of subsidies for smartphones. The MT6577 should help increase the volume deployment of mid- to entry-level smartphones.”– EE Times The MT6577 is a drop-in replacement for its MT6575ancestor, and it’s accordingly going to be used very quickly by “leading global customers” this summer. Knowing MediaTek’s most recent clients, that could soon lead to a sea of very affordable phones from Gigabyte, ZTE and others that have no problems eating an Ice Cream Sandwich . – Engadget<
