Is the TX intel X scale or ARM based?
Hi. Ive read a couple of reviews of the TX and some who have opened their device.
The palm site says that the processor is Intel 312 MHz ARM-based processor, where as in the follwing link
the guy opened up the device and it says PXA 270?
Could jungle mike or someone in the know let me know

have you looked at intel's web site to read about xscale?
The Intel? XScale? microarchitecture Technical Summary
The Intel? XScale? microarchitecture is based on a new core which is compliant with ARM* version 5TE. The microarchitecture surrounds the core with instruction and data memory manage-ment units; instruction, data, and mini-data caches; write, fill, pend, and branch target buffers; power management, performance monitoring, debug, and JTAG units; coprocessor interface; 32K caches; MMUs; BTB; MAC coprocessor; and core memory bus.
some time back, when you compiled for win ce, you had to pick a target processor, x86, arm, mips, etc. but then as time wore on, arm was the only one you had to worry about.
also see xscale data sheet
with palm, they started out with motorola dragonball and are now on arm, which includes xscale. there are a lot of companies making arms, including texas instruments. the ti omap processor in the early tungstens is arm based.
hope this helps...
