I wonder if anybody with qualcom stock sold it for the artificialy increased price in the short window of time that it existed as such. If so; incredible luck or insider trading. Both seem equally likely.
One device with high quality audio/music, phone, GPS, gaming, wi-fi streaming with long battery life would be sooooo cooooooollll
Hope Google/Samsung Galaxy S3.1 can make it happen. When do we get quad and octo cores ??!!

It's hard to keep up - one year ago, most phones came with 500-600 MHz ARMv6 processors, then the 1GHz Snapdragon ARMv7 started appearing, being a huge leap forward. Now it's starting to look rather lame, 65nm and single-core. Looks like we have to upgrade our phones every year to keep up, just as we do with our computers. I am however keeping my HTC Desire until phones start coming with out-of-order architectures some time in 2012 or so.
[citation][nom]Shadow703793[/nom]Damn.... these ARM CPUs keep getting faster and faster... how long did it take the x86 CPUs to break 1Ghz?[/citation]
ARM processors benefit from being in a time of very small transistor manufacturing processes, x86 at its same level of infancy all those years ago didn't have the luxury of 45nm etc etc. Therefore you can't really compare the advancement of the two technologies. It is still very good to see these speed jumps being made, in the end the consumer benefits with the products sporting these processors.
[citation][nom]ionut19[/nom]These new processors are faster and use less power. So..can i upgrade my CPU on my Galaxy S? Is it the same socket..?[/citation]
I wish at least on the desktop we could upgrade the CPUs, damn those new sockets all the time.
[citation][nom]lradunovic77[/nom]So what's up with all these smart phones and crap. I just need fucking phone meaning i only want to call people and nothing else.[/citation]
Then dont buy a smartphone? Is this really that hard? Some people need data on the go, others like yourself only need a cheap flip phone. So go buy a cheap flip phone, and let the people who need smartphones buy smartphones.
[citation][nom]lradunovic77[/nom]So what's up with all these smart phones and crap. I just need fucking phone meaning i only want to call people and nothing else.[/citation] well smart people tend to use them so if you don't want one don't get one. I think they have dumb phones. You may wanna try that out. Sounds more like you.
