no intel atom for islate 0

It seems like all the tablets in the world are converging at CES 2010, except for the most anticipated one of them all – Apple’s iSlate tablet. Even until now there hasn’t been any official confirmation on the device, but we’re fairly sure that information on it will be unveiled at the upcoming event by Apple on the 26th. Now word is going around that the tablet computer from Apple will not be using Intel’s Atom CPU, rather it will be using a processor designed by PA Semiconductor, a company bought by Apple about 2 years ago. Aside from that, Apple has apparently decided on a Qualcomm chip for the iPhone 4G that is headed to Verizon. Do bear in mind that none of these are official confirmations, so you’ll want to take the news with a pinch of salt.
