Exynos outperforms this Quad core Tegra 2 with a die shrink that nVidia are trying to pedal.

It is possible, Nokia is a manufacturer, but their decision to use exclusively Symbian has lead to less sales and yes Nokia's decline. Nokia does sell the phones; however that includes smartphones and dumbphones and even Nokia's smart phone sales are starting to lose.

the target may never achieved but symbian users will again move to symbian after trying android, android is a heck but it became famous thanks to the brand name google and a company with worst hardware performance i.e. samsung and nokias wrong marketing policy, and bizzard descison,

and as far as the question of dropping symbian, nokia says many things but they dont do them

They brag about that they will sell 150 M Symbian devices but the problem is, the public is not buying them anymore. The public wants Android and not Nokia. They just lowered their forecast for Q2 2011. Take a look. In short, Nokia themselves knows that they will miss their target and their profits won't be as high as they expected. The online campaign against Nokia being outdated is working. =D

the mobile phone will never replace the pc because although mobile technology keeps getting better so does pc technology, and also games etc will always need more and more to make the most of that technology

So basicly nvidia just launched tegra 2 a few months ago... created a huge hype around it, launched about 5-6 games for it and now ... the are telling us they are gonna launch a new chip soon and that what we bought will be worthless... and yeah there wont be any more games developed for it :) Welcome to android phone makers... what a total waste of money

>> I really had to check your comment's date, because IF YOU HAVEN'T HEARD, Nokia dropped Symbian already, and took Windows Phone as their new OS. Where have you been the last three months?


Nokia have NOT dropped Symbian. They will ship ~150 million Symbian phones next year. Symbian will be used in one range of phones, Windows in the other.

> In reply to Nokia sucks. @ 2011-05-31 11:16 from M3s@ - click to readandroid will continue to rise, nokia will continue to fall... Android is OS, nokia is phone maker! It's like saying "windows will continue to rise and AMD will continue to fall"... Android is used by half of all phone makers and symbian is only on nokia so how do you expect it to be on top? Yes, symbian sucks and is behind android, but nokia as a maker still manages to be on top of others... By far... And God damn, stop talking about symbian and android everywhere!

I hope this isn't released tell next year as it will allow dual core cpus their time without being obsolete when people have just bought them. People will not buy any phones/tablets these days if they keep making them outdated within 2 months,same thing happened in the games console industry,too many new consoles too fast,that industry has steadied with the main 2 being xbox and ps3 being still top consoles despite being out for several year

Nokia are only opting for the windows mobile scene so to see this chip as a "nokia only product" could be an ill thought assumption. however nividia is going to have competition with samsung's new chip expected to be here by 2012 running with similar perhaps even better specs than this one

HTC,Samsung and LG always will be in front of Nokia ... i use HTC but i used LG and all the time my phones were better than friends Nokia's ... nokia is loosing at all the parameters and they are expensive but i dont think that is any point to pay for Nokia mobile ... i want to say good luck to Nokia on WP7 and to NVIDIA .. i hope tegra will beat intel atoms and a lot of netbooks ...

maybe it will give a start for other producers of mobile processors to bring quad core processors
