The actual announcement for the ARM Eagle core is not expected till later this year, and Anandtech is not expecting actual implementation of the core earlier than 2012. It is expected to be a more efficient design in order to compete with the likes of Intel's x86 Moorestown and MIPS architectures, particular with within the Android ecosystem. MIPS in particular has been active in Android development for its platform, and has recently released an Android port in their attempt to gain a foothold in the booming mobile device market.
Meanwhile, TI is also expected to begin shipment of the Cortex A9 cores in Q4 later this year, with first implementations of the core in early 2011.
