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.

didn't Apple handle this with universal binary's and rosetta for the architecture shift from PPC to x86?


By "universal" binaries, they actually only mean PPC and X86 binaries, not ARM. They aren't really "universal" at all.

They also mean only binaries from Apple, as I'm pretty sure that only Apple bothered with it. Possibly even less "universal" than at first glance.
