Next Internet Tablet to have TI OMAP2430 450Mhz processor?

Posted on May 26, 2008
Filed Under Maemo, speculation |

A while back I was going through kernel-source-rx-34-2.6.21.0-packages .config file in order to build some usb-drivers.

I discovered a commented out line about TI OPAM2430 that was in “OMAP Core Type section”.

#
# OMAP Core Type
#
CONFIG_ARCH_OMAP24XX=y
CONFIG_ARCH_OMAP2420=y
# CONFIG_ARCH_OMAP2430 is not set

Does this mean, that the next tablet might have a Texas Instruments OMAP 2430 processor in it? For comparison N800/N810 tablets have the OMAP 2420 processor running at 400Mhz. Or was it just “the other” option when n800/n810 were designed. Or maybe all kernel-configs have OMAP 2430 “support”.

Anyways, it’s not really a high performance processor, but it has some nice video decoding and encoding features. This was my monday speculation, in real life we’ll just have to wait and see.

The feature list for the 2430 include the following (from TI website):

Multimedia features supported by the OMAP2430 / OMAP2431 processors include:

    Commented out options are just options which are not set. For example,

    # CONFIG_ARCH_IOP32X is not set

    I’m pretty certain Nokia are not anticipating a change of processor to the IOP 32x, which is a NAS-specific processor.

    450Mhz would not be a good improvement.

    [...] o dia: não se sabe se a nova versão dos tablets vem com o chip TI OMAP 2430, mas que o kernel está preparado para ele, [...]

    Sounds interesting. Thanks for info .I like You Now! (sounds weird.. should say I follow you Now!.. ) :)
