Seriously? Why would they be higher end if they also cost less than $10?

Answer: No wireless device that runs off a battery with this processor. Are you a paid commenter?

With the cost under US$10.0 and performance upto 800 Mips, the MPC830x PowerQUICC II processor looks as an attractive choice for low power, high speed applications, especially for Ethernet. Most of the parts in this family also have in-built memory interfaces for DDR2. Do the higher end parts in this family such as MPC831x, MPC832x, MPC834x, MPC837x etc. also cost less than US$10 each, or more?

What type of wireless devices could you design with a Freescale communications processors that cost under $10? I am constantly amazed anew at the novel wireless gizmos all using the same standard protocols as "serious" business systems--like the electronic "rabbit" from nabaztag.com that uses WiFi to get the lastest news headlines as they are posted online and reads them to you--like a speaking ticker tape. All types of cool wireless devices wait to be invented--what type of wireless device would you like to design as the processor costs continue to plummet?
