The pandora (and beagleboard) use the OMAP3530 which (afaik) is just a
retail package of the (oem only) OMAP3430 used in the palm pre and
motorola droid. 
The docs are open  (except the power VR 3D subsystem), and from first
looks it should be fine in a future phone - though it would be a radical
departure from our existing designs.
