Tronsmart, an innovative company based on cutting-edged Android devices, We have sold lots of their Prometheus, and got the firmware upgrade and tech support really fast every time. Now they plan to release their new model: Tronsmart T428, which will be base in Rockchip RK3188 quad core chip.
The RK3188 is a 28nm quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 chip with speeds up to 1.8 GHz.
It has Mali 400 quad-core graphics with speeds up to 500 MHz, and support for OpenGL 2.0 and OpenVG 1.1.
The chip can handle 1080p HD video playback at 60 frames per second, or 1080p HD H.264 and VP8 encoding at 30 frames per second. It can also handle dual panel displays and resolutions up to 2048 x 1536 pixels.

After hours play, i still find some problem, there is no “connect to PC”choice in setting, and The device is also don’t come with rooted, i have no idea how to root a RK3188 Device;
It still has no real 1080P output, like their dual core RK3066 chip, it is still scale from 720P, however, i think, like RK3066, the developer will find method for how to set real 1080p outuput.
