Five minutes into a conversation... battery is at 10%. lol I think instead of shoving even faster processors into phones, they need to invest in much better batteries for portable devices.

I wonder when some of these Mobile Devs are gonna jump into the PC market to grab a slice. It would only mean good things for PC fans as prices and tech would have to stay competitive. If I were Nvidia, AMD or Intel, I'd be looking over my shoulder. I would say that would be a bad thing for consoles, the generation timeline couldn't keep up with the tech and people would just stick with their PC and a Portable alternative. I see the market changing drastically in the next 2-3 years...

These smart phones are going to be more powerful than computers that were popular a few years ago. This is madness.

I'm still using a nokia with a 2mp camera, lol
Why do people need all this crazy stuff?

Perhaps I'll indulge myself sooner or later

The problem here is the clock speed is mostly a crock....

I'm not saying it doesn't have it's merits but in reality these chips will be underclocked most of thier running time.

 

I can(and have) rachet my Tegra2 equiped Xoom to 1.7Ghz and beyond if I want to....just can't expect the massive battery the Xoom already has to last very long. So I leave it idling at 312Mhz and it can go up to 1.5Ghz if it needs to.

I agree. My Nokia N900 is able to run more than 20 apps smooth at once on a linux OS with only a 600MHZ Cortex A8 and 256MB RAM. I can easily run andriod apps, Palm apps, n64 and psx games at 600mhz and OC to 1ghz if needed. For what possible reason would you need a 2.5ghz quad chip in a mobile device lol

Americans complaining about new smartphone come out too quickly? In Canada they come out tooo slow. The best phone I can get is a samsung galaxy S II, but only if I buy it at newegg for $700.  The newest phones availible in my province are Sony Ecricsson Play and the Iphone 4. . . 

No good HTC phones or new Droid phones
