Nice piece over on The Register about Symbian's new OS kernel (EKA2) and the 'smartphone on a chip'. Thanks to Richard D for the heads-up. I've got a copy of the book being talked about and it's awesome(ly thick and technical). Microsoft have got a job on their hands trying to catch Symbian in real time performance...
The CPU in question is Texas Instruments' TI 2420.

And a quick search on TI's site will reveal that: "The OMAP2420 includes an integrated ARM1136 processor (330 MHz), a TI TMS320C55x™DSP (220 MHz), 2D/3D graphics accelerator, imaging and video accelerator, high-performance system interconnects and industry-standard peripherals."
