Droid has as its digital heart a Texas Instruments' OMAP 3430 system-on-a-chip (see diagram), clocked at 600MHz. The iPhone 3GS uses a Samsung S5PC100, at the same clockrate. But both chips are based on the same underlying technology: ARM's Cortex-A8 design, geared for very low-power use, and high performance. The A8 includes onboard 2D/3D graphics accelerator, signal processing, and optimized compilation of Java and other bytecode.
