What's Under The Hood?
So, like me, i'm guessing many of you are wondering whats powering this puppy. I'm just curious to see if anyone will disassemble their unit to show us it's guts? Just for s**** and giggles to see whats to come? Someone PLEASE do it!

It's the Colt, as referenced in PB hardware since original firmwares.
It's still OMAP4460 and everything else is still the same.
It's revision 6 of the colt though, so some things probably changed but nothing significant to hardware.

I think they are working on decreasing memory usage and future devices will have too.

The demo units they were using on the podiums at BB World?
Does anyone know/think they had the exact same guts as the Dev Alpha?
They looked butterly smooth.Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal.

As far as we know, all the Dev Alphas are the same. RIM has said their people are using the same dev hardware that we have now (those of us with Alphas, anyway).
They're definitely snappier than the PB. The CPU is only 50% faster by clock speed alone, but the general feel of things is that it's about 2x faster, e.g. for opening apps.

This is actually news to me and a lot of us here because we were under the impression that the Dev Alpha was using the TI OMAP 4460.
In terms of the PlayBook, I think it was some of the earlier ones, since they fixed the power button, I'm starting to think that's not the only modification they made.

Yes it is the OMAP 4460 on the Dev Alpha. They have just underclocked it to 1.0GHz.
