    I wanted to know if my Huawei IDEOS u8150 is ARMv6 or ARMv6 VFP.. one thing I know is that it is ARMv6 but is it VFP? Any good ways to know about this? Huawei Documentation/site/forums doesnt say anything of this... I need to know because in the android market for video players, there are different versions for different processor types like ARM6 and ARM6 VFP versions..

    Welcome to the Android forums!
    Huawei U8150 Ideos is equipped with Qualcomm MSM7201A CPU, which is just ARMv6 without VFP (FPU).

    Thanks, and can you tell me any way I can deduce other VFP CPU's I may come across? Is there any way to know? Or any apps that can do it?

    This is a bit hard. I use this program to see, which functions are supported by my CPU (under CPU, features) :
    https://market.android.com/details?id=com.electricsheep.asi&feature=search_result

    Best way to find CPU used in particular phone is to look following pages :
    GSMArena.com - GSM phone reviews, news, opinions, votes, manuals and more... doesn't have CPU specifications, at least type
    Main Page | PDAdb.net - Comprehensive Database of Smartphone, PDA, PDA Phone, PNA, netbook & Mobile Device Specifications search for a phone and it will show also CPU (but no VFP availability info)
    http://pdadb.net/index.php?m=cpu list of mobile CPUs
    Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia if you know CPU model, try to search in Wikipedia (for CPU name or simply phone name), some infos can be also found there
    ARM architecture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ARM processors with all features

    Or the last chance is to search for something like "MSM7227 VFP" on Google (processor equipped in my phone, first posts should be about availability of VFP in this chipset).
