Think about your current cell phones and PDAs which use an ARM processor. Is the "real internet" available on many or any of them? In all likelyhood, it's not. You get a trimmed down version of particular websites that consists solely of text. Part of the reason for this is probably the bandwidth needed to download web pages off of the "real internet" the other part is the arm processor and it's capabilities. One of the big selling points of the Iphone is that it is capable of displaying the "real internet" in its browser. I think it would be a big step up from there to be able to play PC games on that processor versus just displaying web pages in a browser. The cache and amount of memory an ARM processor uses is also much less than an x86 CPU which is currently needed to play wow. Rumor has it though that the big brother to the Iphone will have an x86 cpu driving it. When you add hardware accelerators for the display and multimedia (which I am sure the curren Iphone already has) it makes it very feasable that the next generation Iphone could play wow.
