Rydeen is a shanzhai rebrand. I saw prototypes picture about a month ago, and one of my contacts actually has one of them. It runs Android 1.6 and has decoding abilities worse than RK2808, and can't even play 720p. So no nothing new from IFA that I didn't know already...

Shanzhaiben claims Android 2.2 in October, but I doubt the validity of this because of the way the article was written.

The TCC8902 beats this chipset
