Posts Tagged ‘Kindle2’
While my day job is @ Cisco’s SPVTG BU is Business Development and/or Product Strategy, I am certainly a geek @ heart. And hence the nature of these posts and the gadgets that I play around with…
- Android has started with OMAP/ARM Cores, you can get all the source and it is based on the Linux 2.6.2x Kernel for OMAP
- The ARM Core also powers the Apple 3G iPhone – it is supposed to be a Samsung chip, you can find the info here.
- As noted in #1 above, the first Android Phone – the T-Mobile G1 (by HTC) is also powered using OMAP/ARM core.
- The Amazon Kindle 2 is also powered by an ARM-11 Core, look here for details.
You see the common theme, it has been a long, long time since I hacked/coded on the ARM core but I am sure this will all come back to me….
(BTW need to look at investing in ARM Holdings, the company that licenses the ARM Cores …)
