More likely it is because they are not direct customers for Rock-Chip.
Most OEM's have a minimum quantity of sales that will enable friendly and
direct support. In this case they are probably starting at 10k units. We
can estimate approx $5 per chip so it's around $50k expenditure required
to get their attention.
There are other ways to get inside too and maybe providing them with some
stats on the sales potential for audio/multimedia applications will get us
Maybe Perry is already on that level with them and if that is the case it
could also be a way in :-)
They might also be interested in knowing what kind of companies are using
Linux for multimedia and how their products fit into that equation too.
We can't assume that the Rock-Chip sales and marketing team know anything
about Linux Audio/Multimedia. They may be exclusively focused on Android
development because they think it is the only market for their product.
