    Trying to keep up-to-date with the latest advancements in mobile processing can seem like a daunting task at times: you've got a lot of inscrutable acronyms and initialisms to remember, and just when you think you're on top of them all, some new ones arrive. Think you know your A7 from your A9 from your A15? Today we've got one more to throw in the mix, as ARM reveals its latest processor design, the Cortex-A17. While the A15 was targeted at high-end uses, the A17 is much more mid-range-focused. Up to four A17s can be tied together, and the die supports big.LITTLE features for building ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Motorola's plans to upgrade the company's current smartphone line-up to Android 4.4 KitKat. We then talk about Samsung, the results in sales of the Galaxy Gear, and what to believe and not believe. We follow the news with some more rumors of Apple building a bigger iPad at 12.9-inches, and why this makes sense since we currently have the iPad Air and iPad mini, along with the iPad mini with Retina Display. Later we talk about the possibility of a 128-bit chip for smartphones and tablets, as if 64-bits wasn't enough for you. We end today's show ...

    With the release of the iPhone 5S and its 64-bit A7 processor, Apple really forced the industry's hand, and everyone's now racing to deliver 64-bit devices of their own. On the Android side, Samsung's been very vocal about its 64-bit aspirations, and we're expecting a 64-bit Exynos chip to arrive in a Samsung phone sometime next year. Today we get a quick update on that project, and hear from ARM about where things are going from here. According to an unnamed ARM exec, ARM met with Samsung today to discuss the pending launch of the company's 64-bit Exynos chip. While we're glad to hear ...

    ARM announces Cortex-A12 processor, as we're seeing a cornucopia of devices being unveiled at Computex, and not only. The chip-maker aims to "power the 580 million mid-range mobile devices expected over the next two years", and wants to do that with the new Cortex-A12 processor and the Mali-T622 GPU. ARM's new Cortex-A12 processor is claimed to bring a 40% performance boost over the Cortex-A9 architecture, while consuming the same amount of power. It also supports ARM's big.LITTLE processing technology with the Cortex-A7 processor, alongside unleashing features which, according to the ...

    Snapdragon is one of the most successful and vastly popular mobile SoCs and is brought to us by Qualcomm. Something we don't often consider is that the Snapdragon is based on ARM's designs. To see where Snapdragon is headed, we first need to look at the ARM roadmap. ARM is the company that many of today's mobile SoCs are based upon. Some are ARMv5, some are ARMv7a-compatible. Others are something entirely different. Notice that I said "based upon". One might think that an SoC based on ARMv5 technology is old and slow. Not necessarily. Since ARMv5 has been around for a while there's been a ...
