Default Imagination Technologies wants to take MIPS mainstream with Firefox OS tablet

From http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2015/...fox-os-tablet/

Quote:
A couple of weeks ago, in a shadowy corner of a fancy coffee house in London, I was handed a rather interesting gadget: a white, nondescript 9.7-inch tablet. I tapped the power button, and the Firefox OS lock screen appeared. That wasn't the surprising bit, though. Rather unusually, there was a MIPS-based CPU inside the device.

In February, Imagination Technologies released the CI20 single-board computer—essentially a Raspberry Pi-like computer for developers and DIY types, but it came with a 32-bit MIPS chip at the helm rather than x86 or ARM. So this new tablet, made by the Chinese company Ingenic, won't ever go on sale. Rather, it's a reference tablet that Imagination Technologies will give out to developers and hobbyists to get them onto the MIPS bandwagon.

If you're a developer or hobbyist and want to get your hands on the new Firefox OS tablet, Imagination Technologies is running a giveaway.

I don't see any 'giveaways'! Is this just an advertising posting?

I've been all over their website, & associated sites - I didn't find any 'giveaways' anywhere.
