According to Jenn over at Pocketables, AMD's brass feel the Global VPITG xpPhone should replace iPhone and BlackBerry. (BTW, Congratulations Jenn on the new baby girl!) The exact chip being used in the slider-style MID phone is listed as an "AMD Super Mobile CPU" which can customized with clock speeds above and below 1GHz. The AMD execs thing highly of this new chip (Rumored to be based on the Geode CPU) and as Pocketables reported: "Rick Lisa, Global VP of AMD Embedded Sales, recommend that his colleagues use the xpPhone instead of the iPhone or BlackBerry". "Buddy Broeker, Director of AMD Embedded Computing Solutions Division, thought that "most of [his] colleagues [were] feeling jealous" about his ITGxpPhone. Honestly, the is thing is ugly and huge. I find it hard to really consider it a phone. And if it is based on a Geode chip then I worry that is will be underwhelming.
More at Pocketables as well as where (if your feeling brave) to by it.
