Could 2GHz ARM Cortex A9 Chip be Future iPhone/iTablet Bound?

During ARM's Q3 financial results announced today, 9to5Mac noticed this little gem:

With O2 exclusivity ended (but the iPhone still for sale on their network), Vodafone ramping up soon as well, and rumors of 3 next year as well, so UK iPhone lovers will have what US readers still lack -- a huge amount of carrier choice.
