    Palm Pixi Processor: Full Spec Sheet
    The high-performance MSM7627™ chipset solution is designed to enable mass-market devices with advanced functionality and rich multimedia capabilities that take advantage of the broadband data speeds available through 3G networks worldwide.

    The MSM7627 solution features an industry-leading level of integration, enabling devices with high-end functionality to be slimmer, sleeker and last longer on a single battery charge.

    Powerful multimedia capabilities integrated into the MSM7627 chipset translate to a richer, more compelling experience while browsing the web, accessing online applications, playing 3D games, capturing high-resolution pictures and video, and more.

    Technical specs:
    • Two ARM cores integrated into a single chip – a dedicated CPU core and a dedicated modem processor – for an unparalleled level of integration:
    o 1. 600MHz applications processor with floating point unit and L2 cache
    o 2. 400MHz modem processor

    • Supports both CDMA2000® 1xEV-DO Rev. A and UMTS HSDPA 7.2Mbps/HSUPA 5.76Mbps, and GSM

    • In addition to the two ARM cores, features 320MHz application DSP for multimedia supporting full 30 fps WVGA encode/decode, 200MHz hardware-accelerated 3D graphics core supporting OPEN GL 2.0, high-resolution camera, integrated GPS

    • 12mm x 12mm footprint
    • Optimized power consumption

    I'm not that big of a fan of the Pixi, but this is a nice find. Maybe my girlfriend will get it. It will either be the Pixi or the Hero

    which is better of both? I don´t know what processor has the Hero.

    I believe the processor in the Pixi is better, but she likes the Hero's larger screen

    Hero has a Qualcomm MSM 7201A 528 MHz ARM processor

    I believe the GSM Hero uses a similar chipset clocked at 528mHz, but it does appear to be better optimized than webOS right now.

    How it makes this difference?

    I heard the Hero is pretty laggy once you have a few widgets but there is supposed to be a new rom for it tho that will improve performance.

    I have personally used the HTC Magic/MyTouch and I found it to be too laggy for a power user. I had a few widgets and the keyboard was lagging while texting. Unacceptable IMO.

    Yeah I was referring to the optimization with that new ROM. As for why optimization matters, the Hero seems to give an impression of better performance with that new ROM because of it, even though it's slower than the Pre.... though by the same token that also means Palm has much more room for improvement with future versions of webOS.

    True, but does Palm allow the Pre to have any virtual memory? It could really reduce some lag by having the flash memory available. As good as the processor is on the Pre, it doesn't seem as snappy as it should be, but maybe that is because they are under clocking the processor. You are right about future improvements on the webOS devices

    MaxAdobe event will start in October 3. Month when Flash Beta will be release for Pre, exactly date,in October,? will see

    How does this compare to the Pre?
    no 'Thanks'
  12. #12  
    Interesting... so the UMTS on this is actually faster than the Pre's.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    On this comparison chart we can find some differences between it.

    Pre doesn't have autofocus, and I highly doubt that the Pixi will either.

    The Pre also doesn't have a trackball, and does have Facebook support in Synergy, not a separate application. And it will most likely get the separate application the same time the Pixi does.

    Basically that article is just misinformed all around.

    Those are the official specs that the chipsets are capable of, but I can assure you that the Pre does not use SmartReflex (though it is possible to enable manually if you can access Linux), a 1024x768 display, have video output, decode WMV, connect to USB On theGo devices, or connect to USB Hard drives.

    And webOS doesn't support OpenGL of any sort, so 2.0 vs 1.1 means absolutely nothing, neither device will be using that for a long time.

    I thought we were just talking about the processors in general? Palm hasn't officially said what the Pixi will be capable. Qualcomm just released the specs of the chip and I provided specs of the Pre's chip

    What does a company need to run a full specifications processor, software, apps, just determination, it means more cost,......., on benefit of a consumer ?
