iPhone/iTouch... how powerfull?
hi, i work in R&D dept in my university, and the other day the engeniers where talking about building a device that can keep all their software for robots, for control them, testing etc without a laptop. Some of them said that a Palm would be better because of the power and bla bla bla , others say a pocket pc. i think those 2 are open for developers. i know that the iphone and ipod touch have a very powerfull procesor,all this core stuff, and an amazing screen. but, how accesible is all that power. and how dificult is to programing into them. so, what will you chose ?
2) pocket pc
4)building a custom device using an ARM, about 100 MIPS
PD. i realy dont know cuz im in the R&D dept as a designer :P but they tell me that creating custom software from scratch in the ARM procesor would be very powerfull. Just whant to know you opinion tx
