Which devices?

Any word as to what genre of devices (or companies) will use these processors? POS? PPC? All of the above?

Sony uses the PAX250 in Palm OS 5 clies and you would expect them to most likely use the new 255 in future models. It's also rumored that Palm SG may use an intel chip in a future model.

Only if you could upgrade processor on these PDAs as easy as upgrading your PCs would be so nice... *sigh*

afaik PXA263 is supposed to be in the new samsung palm os 5 phone. furthermore this smartphone should have be embedded with 32mb ram what could also prove that it has PXA263 ..
but the best thing is the intel strataflash memory .. because it's basically ram but without power it acts like rom ..

Somone has successfully swapped the 255 for the 250 I believe in some PocketPC's (from reading some boards yesterday).

I also read that Dell has quietly substituted the 255 into their PDA's, there doesn't seem to be absolute confirmation of this though.

So perhaps you can pay some ridiculous amount to swap in your POS or PPC soon?

Hmmm... not sure I like "Palm OS" being shortened to POS. ;-)

Ouch! I'm sure it can be an abbreviation for many other things that are much nicer than what you're thinking...

Of course, I can't seem to think of any right now.

Well, duh. They just announced the PXA255 now -- and Toshiba's been shipping their PXA255-based e755 for over a week. So, yes, odds are Sony will plop it in a CLIE for this summer -- if only to help speed up that pathetic dog of their software, CLIE Viewer!
