A word processor (also more formally known as a document preparation system) is a computer application used for the production (including composition, editing, formatting, and possibly printing) of any sort of viewable or printed material. ...


The processor is capable of speeds of up to 37 mhz and can run up to 3.5 mips(million instructions per second). It is a 32 bit processor with many built-in functions, it has a color and grayscale display controller, pc speaker sound, is able to directly access dram, flash rom, and mask rom, and has built-in support for touch screens.


It is an all-in-one computer on a chip, before the dragonballEZ palm pilots had twice as many i.c.'s(intergrated circuits)
