Samsung Mondi WiMAX MID powered by ARM11 CPU

Samsung_mondi_cpu One of several unknowns surrounding the newly announced Samsung Mondi WiMAX MID was the CPU running the Windows Mobile 6.1 machine and allowing the included Opera 9.5 browser to provide users with "immediate access to the Web without having to sacrifice download speed and portability."

Neither the press release nor the company's news blog revealed the identity of the critical component, so I reached out to my PR contact at Samsung while he was mostly unavailable at CTIA last week. I heard back from him today and unfortunately, the news won't make Steve of UMPCPortal happy at all.

According to the email I received this morning, the CPU inside the Samsung Mondi is the 800MHz S3C6410 ARM11 Mobile Processor. Sorry, folks, no Cortex in this one. I hope the price is a reflection of that.
