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.

Indeed.

Microsoft may have a version of the NT kernel with a basic sub-set of the executive running on ARM, but I highly, highly doubt that they've got the whole of the executive and/or a significant chunk of the GUI environment ported over and running - even an incomplete test/scratch version.
