The following is an overview of a teardown analysis conducted by IHS Technology Teardown Services.

  • PDA Phone from Handspring
  • TI OMAP310 basic multimedia processor utilizing enhanced ARM 925 application processor core.
  • Optimized for high volume cost sensitive wireless/PDA applications.
  • Combination of OMAP310 and Palm OS 5 enables low cost implementation of graphics-rich applications, multimedia functions such as sound and video playback, and managing large databases.
  • Quad-Band GSM/GPRS
  • Lowest overall cost when compared with MDA II and P900
  • 2.5 Inch CSTN 160x160 pixel display - lowest cost display used in 3 models analyzed
  • 144mHz ARM processor
  • No USB / Charging cradle (Included with MDA II, P900)
  • RF / Baseband Summary
    • Uses Silicon Labs RF solution, RF CMOS
    • The timing reference is a VCXO, which is unusual. The Silicon Labs solution only requires a MHz crystal. The VCXO is a more expensive solution versus a MHz crystal or even a TCXO.
