EKA2, the new kernel on the (not very) quiet

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...

Read on in the full article.

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."
"The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully." -Emerson
