M0 is primarily to replace 8-bit MCUs, why bother with high MHz, that is just asking for trouble. In most applications a 20 MHz M0 can outperform a 60 MHz 8-bit MCU while being lower power than most 10 MHz 8-bits. M0+ is another source of income for ARM with some improvements for the users. If new cores hit the market, it usually takes about a year until devices with the new core become available. Available = can be ordered through Digikey, not first samples in the lab. btw. Nuvoton extended the laws of physics, the oscillator runs from -400C!.. I always though 0 Kelvin would be the limit ;-)

I'd expect them to co-exist, just as ARM7 keeps going even though M3 is its successor.

Puzzled at the relatively low maximum clock speed - perhaps the slowest incarnation of M0 yet seen?

I wonder when there are so many vendors with Cortex-M3 offerings in tiny packages (e.g, TI's Stellaris, Energy Micro etc.), why engineers will think to use MCU with another ARM core.

Didn't ARM just announce the M0+ core? Will the M0 be left in the dust or are they expected to really co-exist? Any thoughts on how many ARMs you really need?
