We recently reported on Cell processor details that were unveiled to the public. This time around Sony and partners IBM and Toshiba made clear in a joint statement that the Cell processor would be used in more than just the PlayStation 3. Immediate plans include IBM working with Sony on a Cell-powered workstation PC that will be made available next year.

"That machine is intended mainly for creating computer animation and enabling other demanding graphics tasks. Both Sony and Toshiba [also] expect to begin selling high-definition TV sets powered by the Cell in 2006."
