Well, no, not just yet - but why let reality get in the way of a
headline....?

For a better take on what is _really_ happening, you could look at:

http://focus.ti.com/docs/pr/pressrelease.jhtml?prelId=sc05153

  There you will see, that no, the F20xx does not have 20 bit
addressing - why would the 6 announced parts, with <= 2K of flash,
need 20 bit address mode ?
  The 20 bit is comming in a new FG series, that will have > 64KFlash,
and so need the extended opcodes feature.

addressing

No, it's in the core.

Of course, the 2K flash parts won't need 20-bits of addressing (they don't
need 13-bits either!), and I doubt if many embedded engineers will be
slipped up by that.
