    The Inquirer has gossip about Intel's future plans concerning mobile phones and portable devices. Paul Otellini, Intel's CEO, would like to swap out current mobile phone CPUs for chips made by Marvell. This should allow them to run their operating systems faster, thereby enabling manufacturers to compete with Apple's upcoming iPhone. Apple has said that its phone will be running a special version of the OS X operating system that powers Mac systems. It may be powered by Marvell Xscale processors.

    I thought marvell made raid chips only? Also, does anyone find it funny that Intel is saying their cell phone processors arent as fast as Marvell's? Maybe I just read it wrong. Does anyone know who is the major supplier of phone cpus right now? Would be neat if I could upgrade mine !

    Hmm I didn't know Intel and Marvell were working together on that now. I can't say I really care about cell phones getting faster though...

    Interesting news. Although I agree with Scavar, as long as my phone can make phone calls, I really don't care how powerful the cpu is.
