An article on InformationWeek quotes Warren East, president and CEO of ARM as confirming that Apple’s upcoming iPhone will hold “at least three” processor cores.
The processor has been identified a PXA320, formerly known as Intel’s Monahan processor and now supplied by the Marvell Technology Group. ARM processors have found their way into “90 percent of the world’s mobile phone handsets” as well as application processors and a large percentage of available MP3 players, according to East.
East then went on to comment that “Apple will talk about the contents of the iPhone when Apple’s ready to talk about the contents of the iPhone.”
ARM currently also supplies many of the processors used in the current generation of Apple’s iPod and iPod Nano davices according to the wikipedia entry.
