    Meh, I'm waiting for the Moorestown devices, hope they'll get form factors and battery life under control.

    This looks like what they're using in the Pandora handheld.

    looks fantastic. i really hope ARM's architecture stays in the iPhone.

    their Cortex series is best in the industry and im sure the new 32nm will beat Intel Atom 2 (or whatever) in every aspect. after all, its "small and elegance" vs "stupidly large and marketing". (reminds us of ATI vs nVidia)

    I wish i just could upgrade to a new arm processor instead of buying a new pda. Like a mini Z-socket. Just open up your PDA, open ziff socket, take out processor, insert new processor, reboot...

    What impresses me is that they are way deeper then Intel or AMD, 32nm and 28nm gate lengths built on high-k metal gate fabrication, its just wow.
