long time no leaving a comment on eetimes. Of course, the core chip of the embedded devices not only cellphones but also any others will be smaller and smaller.

What about expanding AppleTV into gaming - an analog input device controller would require better analog processing - no?

Just a theory, without any knowledge of the real thinking of the North Koreans...

Maybe it is expensive to pay off North Korea to blow the Samsung Mobile Phone Factories off the map... how they are going to avoid hitting the semi Fabs, beats me!

Good points about cost reduction for the older gen products that Apple still sells. The additional USB and the more costly process for better analog support, however, clearly point to a future Apple device. Whether that is the iWatch or something else, we shall have to wait and see.

I'm going out on the limb first to say I think this is for a low end iPhone to be announced this year. iPhone Mini anyone?

"This is the big question. Why go through all the work of this redesign, including the move to a separate DRAM package? The Apple TV is just a hobby. No? Two hypotheses have emerged. The first one centers around economics." Its not just the Apple TV. The new ipod touch also uses A5, which still sells in millions. They still sell the iPhone 4,iPad 2, ipad mini which all uses the A5 chip. The die size reduction thus might make sense for them. In addition, they are rumored to release iwatch/iphone lite etc which could also use A5.
