This is great! a multicore processor fo mobile phones.
Mobile Tecnology is developing so fast.
You wont be able to decide for a good mobile device cause when you finally decide for one that is even in manufacturing then suddenly a better hardware appears that could you change you mind and you will continue waiting for a smartphone that has it. So funny. Well at the moment i like HTC sense and it is between HTC Dragon and Sony Erisson Xperia X10. Android Rocks! and now Google already start to develop a software similar to appstore and itunes from apple but for Android, Also google now is thinking about making it's own phone. Working at Google would be so so so nice!. i'd be glad to.

What's wrong with the numbers? A5 is more advanced that A8 and A9?

If you want a powerful Android phone with the same performance as Maemo (or any other efficient OS, like Symbian), then you'll need a much more powerful phone.

That's perhaps why hi-res games such as Bounce aren't made for Android...
