According to https://twitter.com/locusf/status/535478482072260608 we will get http://ark.intel.com/products/80274/Intel-Atom-Processor-Z3735F-2M-Cache-up-to-1_83-GHz (thanks to dac for answering that question below)

From

http://ark.intel.com/compare/80273,80274,80268,80269,80275,80270

I learn that I either want a Z3775 with 4GB RAM or Z3775D with 2GB RAM (both have a higher core and burst speed and are Type4 with several other advantages), if you need to stick to the 1.8GHz... the Z3745 (also Type 4 but with same core speed) would be my choice.

So they went for the cheapest chip available, why? I doubt anyone of the current contributors would mind to have paid $20 more and get BADASS CPU and 4GB of RAM.

Maybe Intel is not subsidizing the more expensive ones ?

Why did you edit and change your question from "which is the CPU that will be used" to "why they went for the cheapest CPU", so that my answer now looks almost off topic? :-) Funny...

@dac honored ;) I am in the process of reading up on every detail and what features are "must-haves" in my opinion, and my initial 3 still stand after reading up... added some more details

no problem actually, Just thought that we should try to keep things consistent... Else people could get confused at some point trying to understand the thread... If the questions get changed after answers have been given. It was not about the "credit"... :-)

the main difference in CPU upgrade is ... cost and as it doubles, more exotic models consume 10% less, they have faster bus, AES-NI support, etc. I would prefer to pay an extra $20 more to have the upgraded cpu instead.

According to what we know, it should be the Z3735F, it was answered here.

About an upgrade, well, we will see whether that is still possible. I do not believe in it. But it seems the Z3735F does have AES-NI support as written in the detailed datasheet.

That would make sense - @Stskeeps mentioned that the listings on ark are often incorrect. So no wonder it is not listed on ark but present in the datasheet.

Thanks, I read up on it.

Jolla Roadmapping Meeting - Friday 16.01.2015

Thank you for your contribution to the Jolla Tablet project!

We receive a lot of ideas and suggestions, which we are grateful for, but all of them can't be implemented. We've reviewed your idea and unfortunately it is not something we can implement, at least right now.

However, we will keep all suggestions, and might revisit this decision in the future if we see an opportunity to implement this feature-request in an upcoming product/SW release.

Best regards,
The Jolla Tablet Team
