I think nahab has a better chance of getting struck by lightning than being able to purchase a non x86 version of Rybka by the end of the year.

no. i can almost guarantee it. reason being rybka needs to be tweaked for this & vas is presumably still spending all his energy finishing up rybka 4.  only way this would not be the case is if part of the reason for his absence lately has been that he's developing a pocket rybka to be released in conjunction w/ r4, which is possible...but i'd say unlikely if no one's heard anything about it.

pocket fritz 4 looks fantastic so you can't really lose on this one anyway.

Hi yanquis1972

sorry, no, i was referring simply to its performance at the tournament recently.  as far as strength is concerned supposedly HIARCS scales much better on pocket processors than rybka, so eg HIARCS X on pocket pc's is actually stronger than rybka 3 (in its current form) on pocket pc processors.
