Most devices are 'ARM', which is a CPU type that is less powerful but more power efficient than the x86 CPUs. Thus you see most mobile devices including cellphones and tablets using ARM CPUs. Of the types of ARM CPUs, they are distinguished by their revision, just like how there's Pentium 2, Pentium 4, Pentium 4. Only if you are still confused, ask the question in the General Section. Thanks. Identifying the type of CPUARMv5 Examples:
