Silicon.com reports today on plans by ARM (who produce the technology behind a lot of MS Smartphones) to produce a new CPU for mobiles.
The CPU would need less power but would also contain antihacking and antivirus features too. Phones are increasingly being used like a computer (especially the MS Smartphone!) and ARM wants to increase security and scale down power consumption. The new CPU is called the ARM 1176JZ and is designed for 3G phones.
