    right thats the issue, you can throw a quad core in there if you want to, but you will need a small nuclear reactor in your pocket.

    Sounds good. I wonder how much more battery life this will suck up though. Something that's important on a mobile device.

    I read another article saying (iirc) that it uses less power than current hummingbird (although i'd guess thats probably with only 1 core running).

    There is a rumour that this might be used for the Samsung galaxy S 2, which would be pretty sweet hehe (although I love my original SGS [​IMG])

    not really.
    would be nice if you can actually play back your 1080p HD vacation recordings on your fancy flatscreen by just plugging your phone into your TV
