I've been looking at the Samsung mobile CPUs/SoC list and then I've 
searched the web for something simmilar/better...
And I've found OMAP 3530 which is used by BeagleBoard.
By reading the specification of the Samsung S3C6410 
and TI OMAP 3530
I've got impression that OMAP application processor is a lot better 
when it comes to the speed and architecture than 
Samsung S3C6410 and it's already in production on BeagleBoard ( Linux 
based minimal size board - ).
Power consumption should be simmilar to Samsung SoC.

Was it (TI OMAP 3530) already considered for GTA04 or not?
Could someone tell me why not use it in GTA04?

I've bought GTA02 and after few days I've sold it because I need more 
powerfull mobile device and now I'm (and many other people are) targetting 
at GTA04.

The second suggestion - a bigger display/touchscreen than GTA01-03 - it 
would be great if GTA04 could have bigger display - wide screen 3,5" with 
something like 480x800 display resolution. It's now really needed for 
devices with touchscreen which display on-screen keyboard.

The last thing - will GTA04 have TV-out support? It would be very 
usefull, too.
