Next iPhone?

Postby alexvorn2 on Tue Sep 16, 2008 10:01 am

Apple's recently-acquired PA Semi team of expert engineers are developing an ARM-based processor for use in future iPhones and, conceivably, the iPod touch.

Speaking to the New York Times shortly after the PA Semi acquisition, Apple CEO Steve Jobs confirmed the engineering expertise would be used to create chips for mobile devices, but what hasn't been known until now is that these chips are based on ARM architecture.

The news was revealed yesterday when one of the engineers involved in the project told others within his personal profile on LinkedIn, the popular business Social networking site.

As seen by the New York Times (via MacRumors), Wei-han Lien, the senior manager of Apple’s chip team revealed his work in developing an ARM-based processor for the iPhone - he manages the ARM CPU architecture team for the iPhone.

Apple acquired PA Semi, a global leader in processor design, in June, and when it did the company also acquired the services of Wei-han Lien.

Apple currently uses ARM chips manufactured by Samsung in its iPod and iPhone lines.

I don't see how this is a threat, or SPAM - More just a random comment posted on public knowledge, but hey Husse: It would be good if Mint got a head start on Ubuntu for this platform. I've been hacking away on my buddies 3G, and I've got to say, the possibility of Minty iPODS all over the place in the near future isn't that far off. There's a whole community here with repo's and a whole load of UNIX apps. and gnu utilities, and everything else you could need already ported. Mint is the only reason I'm relearning the console and I'm hacking the **** out of this thing (got MPlayer and VLC streaming my local radio and TV stations, and can even download songs directly P2P)!
