    I was just about to make a thread and the handy forum feature said one already exists for this topic.

    I can't believe how far phone technology has come. It seems like yesterday when people were gawking over 1ghz phones and here we are with dual cores. Android paired with 2ghz processors will be a good combination in my opinion.

    It's so funny to me, we barely are taking advantage of 1GHz dual core processors, yet we are already pushing for 2 GHz processors.

    The tech on the processors is advancing so quickly, yet the number one thing I want are better batteries. When will we see better battery technology?

    Engadget if you haven't seen this you should... It should be the next wave of battery tect ...
    It would make collecting cans worth it lol....

    I agree with you lategordon... I can't see how you can justify
    2ghz duel core phone but can't make a singal core phone last a day with average use to todays standards across the board with all phones not just some...

    I think its more important to be first with the next powerhouse phone or tab then to make it reasonably usable...

    With that said if this is true and it will be ready by the end of this year ... I will get it ... lol ..

    battery technology will always be behind the processor tech. no one wants to invest money into battery technology. it doesnt pay them anything. why not just have a hydrogen cell on it. just drop the phone into water to re fill it. i bet a lot of people would welcome that. haha

    Is that why the Atrix has such awesome battery life?

    ive never used an atrix, but i dont know. is Atrix running GB i dont think froyo supports dual core so one of the cores should be dormant.

    Froyo DOES take advantage of Dual Core already. Quite nicely I might add.

    I think that's why we're waiting on IC to take full advantage of dual core

    All dual cores run at the same speed.

    tris, quads, six, octo, and even decas too.

    I am kidding, I know you're just illustrating that they are not trying to market two single ghz chips as dual...

    The battery technology already exists, it just is way too expensive to deploy. MIT already completed the design and build process, but I can't find the article that spoke about all that so here is a much older one. See Super Battery: Science Videos - Science News - ScienCentral.

    The University of Illinois is doing similar research for cars now. New battery technology may allow for complete recharging within minutes

    While 1.2 Ghz Exynos powered Galaxy
    S II is waiting to reach markets,
    Samsung is already working on a new
    smartphone with 2 Ghz Exynos
    processor. Apart from putting this 2
    GHz processor in its own smartphone, company is planning to sell these, so we might see them in other
    manufacturers devices as well. According to a report in Duam, a high ranking Samsung official revealed that
    company will release this smartphone
    in 2012, but did not divulge other
    detail about the phone. Smartphone are seeing more
    hardware upgradation than other
    computing device these days, we have
    nVIDIA already working on Quad Core
    processor, and Samsung might also
    have plans for the same along with the 2 Ghz Exynos. But, do we really need
    such powerful smartphone?
    Personally I wouldnt mind, but smartphones will not replace my laptop in the recent future.

    I think it was Samsung who said that we may well see quad core tablets and even phones by the end of the year. I can just imagine the speed and battery life (only one core need remain active when CPU demand is low, cutting the power footprint to 1/4 of "normal")!

    Fun times!
