One thing they fail to mention is battery life. Have I missed some major technological advancement in the last 6 months? Seriously? Current smartphones struggle to last a business day as it is. Although I do like the idea of carrying a dual core cpu around in my pocket Just need the batteries that can match the rest of the hardware.

It is important to the people who rather live with their phone than the people around them and its equally important to the e-peen people who need the latest and the greatest but they won't ever take advantage of it.
@Champski: My current phone (Galaxy S) has a 1300 mAH battery, while the dual core Atrix 4G will have a 1930 mAH battery.
Also a dual core phone can complete tasks faster than a single core obviously, which is a lot more economically. So all in all the new phones should have a battery life similar to the current generation phones.
To those arguing that the battery life is going to be atrocious, this is not true. Two cores working at half speed provides more efficiency than a single core processor running at 100%. Since most tasks done on a phone do not require the use of all of a dual core's power, it is speculated that the new phones will be getting BETTER battery life than the current single core smartphones.
