The Pandora is based upon OMAP3530 and DM3730 System-on-a-chip, that includes a whole family of processors in one single chip:
 
*[[ARM]] Cortex-A8 CPU
 
*PowerVR SGX graphics core
 
*C64x+ DSP core

=Connectivity=
 
Two usb host ports. Bluetooth,two SD slots with SDIO capability, and a serial UART for adding whatever additional widgets you want (such as a USB GPS system).  Solder pads were designed into the PCB for "hacking" in extra internal hardware.
 
 
 
==RTC and RS-232?==
 
It has RTC and RS-232 (CMOS level) [http://www.gp32x.com/board/index.php?s=&showtopic=38155&view=findpost&p=568882]
