I may have just been missing any news on it, but as far as I know we know very little about the phone and 'Droid Terminator' is just a nickname for whatever Moto's either 2Ghz or Tegra 2 (or both) phone will be. It'll probably be on Verizon, but one rumor suggests we may also see it AT&T as well.

I am kind of new here so don't be too mean to me if this is a no no, but you can find all the rumors about this phone here... Droid "superphone" Pre-release thread

Honestly, how fast do you want it?! I am with Phil on this one, a dualcore device is so amazing it will leave you just stumped, what can you do that you have not done on your device already? Another thing is, don't expect these new devices to last you longer than 4 hours of continuous use, I used an HD7... Even with its 1ghz snapdragon and WP7 with light use on 3g, only got through 8 hours... I am sure that Samsung and Motorola are extremely pressured with battery life, as 1ghz might suck up the battery really fast. Just get a Droid X, it ain't the fastest device on the market anyways! If you want the fastest device on CDMA it might be the Evo, if you want a faster Verizon device, just wait for the next couple of HTC devices. If you want the fastest device on the market, go pick up a G2, MyTouch 4g, or a Galaxy S device.

^^ youtube the tegra 2 gaming demo that's what you can do. And don't forget that just because it's dualcore doesn't mean both will always run at full speed. And with the extra core the cpu should be able to complete task quicker then go back to a slower speed. While its nice to see tegra 2 samsung orian processor will be a true gaming beast.while the snapdragon should be great at cpu task

You can go here to look at some info: http://forum.androidcentral.com/andr...oid-phone.html My Avatar picture could be the Droid T2? It is only a concept. Motorola Android Concept Phone Features Dual Core ARM A9 CPU | Concept Phones

Who the hell thought that by completing things faster it will save battery life? It takes extra energy to complete the process faster, so the battery life will be god awful. The reason netbooks have such great battery life is because their processors are underclocked, that is why my laptop with a core 2 duo only lasts 1 hour on a full charge.

Qualcomm teases 28nm dual-core Snapdragons, pixel-punching Adreno 300 GPU -- Engadget
"...the new 28nm dual-core MSM8960 system-on-a-chip will have five times the performance and consume 75 percent less power than the original Snapdragon"
There ya go. Though I can see where the assumption will be made that it's due to the 28nm.

As someone that uses my droid x for the vast majority of "computer" needs, this type of device would be an interesting concept. I fire up my laptop only when needed, mostly to transfer media. It could be a good solution for users that need the capabilities to run large apps but only want to carry one device. I will be watching this closely.

Well folks it didn't take long for Moto to fire something out into the bloggesphere seeing that leaks of the Dual Core LG Star and Samsung S have been getting a lot of "play time."
Android and Me has just confirmed this is in fact the Motorola Olympus. The Motorola Olympus is rumored to feature NVIDIA’s dual-core Tegra 2 processor, a 4.1-inch display, 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video record, front-facing camera, HDMI out, and is currently running Android 2.2 with Motoblur. We all know that Gingerbread is right around the corner so hopefully Motorola updates this phone to Android 2.3, but we can only hope.
It's said to be releasing around the end of January on AT&T with other carriers following. Yes VZW will get this handset and I do believe it will hit in February with you guessed it............LTE capabilities.
So there you have it. The Dual-Core line up of the Olympus, LG Star and Samsung S. Question is what device is in your future?
Key features of Nvidia's Tegra 2
Dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU — The world’s first mobile dual-core CPU for faster Web browsing, snappier response time, and overall better performance. The Cortex-A9 is the world’s first mobile CPU with out of order execution for more efficient processing, resulting in a better overall experience.

Any idea what the clock speed is on something like this? Not that it is going to matter in the same way, but it'd be nice to know.
EDIT: just answered my own question, 1ghz http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nvidia_...gra_2xx_series

Hardware wise, the LG Star and Olympus look to be nearly the same devices. Nvidia Tegra 2, 8MP Camera, 1080P Video Recording, 4-4.1 inch screens, capacitive touch buttons, no keyboards, etc.
I'm still a bit iffy on the Nexus S. It won't have the same impact of the Nexus One. Also, it seems that Samsung is keeping their real hardware for the Elite/Galaxy S2, so whenever those come out they'll overshadow the Nexus S. Good job Google!
