In a very strange move, that no one quite understands yet, Mediatek has changed the name of their CPU from MTK MT6588 / MTK6588 to MTK MT6589 / MTK6589 .

I rather liked MTK6588. It had a nice ring to it, was easy to remember, and 88 is dividable by 4 (quad) for a solution (22) that when multiplied together (2*2) =’s 4 (quad) as well. It was the perfect chip numeration for this generation of MTK CPU.

Ahh, there’s no accounting for Chinese marketing strategy.
