Onyx to have XScale PXA310 CPU @ 804Mhz.
So a little birdy told me that the BlackBerry 9700 aka "Onyx" is to have the
Marvell (formerly Intel) XScale PXA310 CPU @ 804Mhz
The original bold carries an Intel XScale PXA270 CPU @ 624Mhz.
I have attached an overview sheet of the PXA310 in PDF format for anyone interested to look at.
Now remember; the President of RIM didn't tell me this, so I'm just going on what I heard....but I had already been hearing rumors about an 800+ Mhz CPU in the Onyx.
I was also told the battery life for the Onyx is:
Standby Time: 14.5 Days/348 Hours
Talk Time: ~5 Hours

It has to be a typo, because the PXA310 is an 804Mhz CPU, as it says on the site as well.

uh guys.. the chip clearly states that for mobile applications that it's usually going to be 624mhz. Sure it's capable of 800mhz but that increases power consumption and heat output.
Maybe embedded CPU's are capable of a range of speeds, but usually are clocked to the needs of the platform and power consumption. Expect the CPU to be 624.

Do you think RIM would design, test and manufacture two different sets of hardware for oen phone platform? Which would also technically require two separate OS branches? Seems like a lot of work for nothing..
They most likely have the same processor, it's most likely clocked at 624mhz for mobile applications to reduce heat and power consumption.
And they could be clocked higher than 624Mhz, as history and technology shows as times goes by technology companies tend to develop ways to make products faster while at the same time reducing heat and battery consumption.AT&T - Unlocked BB Bold 9700 - OS 184.108.40.2062.

RIM BlackBerry Bold 9700 / 9020 Onyx Detailed Specs | Technical Specifications | PDAdb.net - Comprehensive Database of PDA, PDA Phone, Smartphone, PNA & Mobile Device Specifications which shows a Marvell PXA930 chip.
I wouldn't recommend overclocking on a blackberry device especially since you already have good memory support and the OS demands aren't that intense. Overclock would be overkill.

I knew I heard this info some place back when ..
804 mhz , well normally you don't go full board
with a processor, you want some room for either
over clocking and or upgrades through software.
even if its 804 mhz , It would probably be better
it run at 704, either way its good news.
- Onyx will be my next BB , one way or another lol
my curve is great but - getting all that in the same
form factor makes it pretty cool , I am going to miss
a bigger screen though - if the resolution can organize
it maybe icons and all will be smaller to give more room
on the screen.
I would encourage RIM to work on the Intuitive nature of the
OS and continue to innovate , but apps on app world are far
too expensive and that is why they are not taking off like the
itunes store, even if the selection is not the same.
Onyx will be a good phone, but I think there is a lesson to be
learned here. apple made one phone, one design and sold it
as a life style. RIM has done the same in selling as a life style
but too many hardware models. I would put more features and
care into one model making it the hot seller for longer, instead
of releasing hardware after hardware. Software is the killer app
here and a form factor that can respond to the demand
