Taiwan's MediaTek is throwing its hat into the crowded mobile processor market, courtesy of a dual-core chip it says is cheap enough to be used in sub-$200 (unsubsidized) Android phones. The solution will compete with processors from QCOM, NVDA, TXN, INTC, and others. MediaTek, which is also bolstering its mobile chip presence by acquiring Taiwanese peer MStar, has strong relationships with many Chinese OEMs.
