The following image is a screenshot from the video where Mike Angiulo at Computex shows a Qualcomm MSM 8660 ARM processor. As you can see this thing is pretty tiny but it packs in a 1.2GHz single CPU/GPU with an integrated 3G/4G model.

He also talked of the impending quad core CPU's on ARM.

This video is well worth a look -- we see a hardware accelerated HTML5 demo on ARM as well as some brief discussion about screen sizes and the emergence of UEFI which Mike mentions has shown cold boot come down to the 6-7 second range.

He also talks about the increasing sensors we'll see in our devices which's a real topic of interest for me of late as it's the key to making our devices smarter about their surroundings and offering software the ability to be contextual by understanding our proximity to other technology, people or places.
