So today I was reading a little bit about the nexus one thats being released later today and it was talking about the processor in the nexus one being a snap dragon 1GHZ, the most powerful out there. So after a quick search i couldnt really find out the speed of our beloved Storm 2's CPU. Anyone know?

As far as I can figure out, the Storm 2 has the qualcomm msm 7627. I cannot find confirmation on this anywhere, but it is a logical assumption considering that this is the chip found in the new Curve. This is also the chip that powers the Palm Pixi, and it is said to be a dual core chip with 1 core running at 600 mhz, and the other core running at 400 mhz. It also has a 200 mhz gpu.

R.I.M. did state themselves that only the Storm 2 and Curve 2 have the newest qualcomm chips to allow open gl processing so I think my reasoning is more than sufficient to say they have the same one.
Also, it wouldn't make much sence to put a more powerful chip in a lower end device that was released less than a month later.

Seeing as the Storm2 has Open GL support and after having both phones, I would be blown away if they have the same processor. My Storm2 is way more responsive. Additionally, I have never heard of a cell phone having a GPU on a separate chip and really don't see how there is much room to do it. I therefore assume it is a completely different processor with an Open GL GPU included.
Hopefully someone will tear one apart and confirm so we can put the discussion to bed.

As I just said on the teardown thread - the entire chipset is under shielding for radio frequency interference protection. Trying to remove the shield would likely destroy the circuit board.
So all we need is one of these "I hate my storm 2" guys to donate one to science It'll never run again, but it's for the betterment of the Crackberry Nation!

Where are the Droid trolls when you need them? They ALL had Storm 2s in there drawers that they left to collect dust because the Droid was the bestest phone that ever was. They should be able to spare one for the greater good.

qualcomm MSM7627 or MSM7600....neither has been confirmed. the MSM7600 was in the storm 1 so the 7627 could be what gives the Storm 2 a little more kick that we see. As stated you would ruin a phone to find out which is why its not commonly know i think. This has been discussed several times with alot of smart people that usually know this stuff and no one has given any definite answer.

I'll tear one down for CB. all I need is 539 people to pay pal me a dollar or 100 people to pay pal me $5.39 or whatever combination it takes to get me $539.99 so I can but one outright for science.

Ok, so here is a complete listing of components inside the Storm 9530 (this confirms it has a MSM7600): Blackberry Storm 9530 Smartphone - What's Inside_text - Electronic Products
Storm2, couldn't find anything better than this: https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/prod/oet/f...ive_or_pdf=pdf
