    FYI, This is NOT just another phone.

    This will be the FIRST phone with dual core processor on AT&T. Up to now, all phones, including Android and iPhones, were based off of ARM Cortex-A8 processor (single core). FYI, just because its dual core, does NOT mean it will have bad battery life. In fact, dual core processors were engineered to reduce power consumption. You will be seeing dual core phones that are MUCH faster and efficient than its Cortex-A8 predecessors

    Most premium smartphones coming out in 2011 will be multi-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor. This is a true next generation phone. For those that have been waiting for THE phone, this is the one. In fact, almost all premium smartphones will be MUCH better than its predecessors.

    This phone will have for a fact:

    • Tegra 2 processor
    • Dual core processor
    • Front Facing Camera
    • Gingerbread 2.3 (Android OS)

    Tegra 2 slide (I assure you battery life will be out of this world good)

    2011 is going to be a hell of a year for smartphones and Android is going to lead.

    the next iPhone iteration will have ARM Cortex-A9 without a doubt. All premium smartphones will be dual core next year. I assure you of this, its just that the Motorola Olympus will be the first to have it, on AT&T at least.

    Apple's the kind of manufacturer that sits and waits before they adopt the newest technology. I'm betting the iPhone 5 comes out with a more efficient, spec bumped A4 chip, with the iPhone 6 eventually getting a dual core chip.

    Lots of Apple's computers are still shipping with old Core 2 Duos, and none of them have even adopted Blu-Ray drives yet.

    Apple has been a first in many things too. da first one to start floppy drives and even stop it. da first one to adopt USB. and you dont even need drives nowadays with cloud based services spreading like fire.. and thats what they have done with MacAirbook. give it a couple of years, optical drives gonna disappear much like the floppy. and yeh, Apple has been the first one to define what a "Smartphone" should be like. So its a first where it should be, it cant be the first everytime.

    No doubt!! That's why it took them how many years to even get into the mobile phone market......
    But..... once they got into it, you gotta admit, they changed everything!!!!

    ARM Cortex-A9 processor can go up to 4 cores. But that won't happen for another 2-3 years imo

    I would be very surprised if Apple put a dual core in the upcoming iPhone.

    Their strategy so far has been to update one year and THEN redesign to help defray manufacturing costs and give them more time for R&D.

    This would be a particularly bad time for a redesign since they are planning to go multi-carrier.

    Guess we will find out in 7 months

    Heard Qualcomm just revealed its next gen Snapdragon.

    One of the weaknesses of the first gen Snapdragon found on like the Nexus One was it used the 65nm process compared to the iPhone 4 with the more power efficient 45nm process. I expect the next gen phones will eventually have outstanding battery life that will last us days. I already saw a Cowon player with a proclaimed 100+ hours of audio. I am happy to see Motorola doing well again and it has a high satisfaction rating. One of its biggest weaknesses was software, but having Android along with Verizon's marketing helped revive them again. I was a fan of Motorola even in my pager days. Remember those? Hardware-wise, Motorola has always been very good being that they are the father of cell phones. Looking forward to their next phone using Tegra 2.

    Check out the different chipsets in this thread -
