Hardware, Embedded Systems And yet another item on the iPad? Are we serious? Yes, we are, since this one is about something that even geeks who aren't interested in the iPad itself should find intriguing. Steve Jobs said yesterday that the iPad is powered by an Apple A4 processor, but contrary to what many seem to think - it wasn't designed in-house at all.

That it was ARM was known, wasn't it? (at least for me .. how else should iPhone apps work?)

So to me it seems as if it just as much Apple SOC as the Snapdragon is Qualcomms etc.

ARM offers basic designs that you can customize .. Samsung, Qualcomm and Apple are pretty equal in that regard.
