The new Mypal A620 is powered by Intel's fastest and most frugal PCA processor, the PXA255 (PCA= Personal Internet Client Architecture). Like its predecessor, the PXA250 , its core is based on the Xscale technology, although the new version offers improved power management. Although the core speed remains the same, the bus speed has been doubled to 200MHz, making the PXA255 considerably more powerful than the old version.
