It was spotted at the ARM Technology Conference, running "Linaro" Linux middleware - as well as stock Android 2.2 - obviously at the moment it's early days, these are simple development boards, so they couldn't be shown off, or flexing their muscles through testing, etc.

But, a demo was shown running Futuremark's old Cyber Samurai benchmark.

This chip could end up in Samsung's future Galaxy Tab or the previously noted flagship phone ;)
