HP Pre 3 silently gets a 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU in the UK - read the full textNow here's a shocker for you - the upcoming HP Pre 3 will be packing a dual-core CPU at launch, rather than the single-core unit it was initially said to feature.

WebOS has always been the best just poor filtration. palm/hp do a slightly bigger mobile with sdame design, bigger ecreen, easier buttopns and YOU WILL HAVE A WINNER

Shouldn't you kids be taking remedial English this Summer instead of filling up posts with useless, misleading, and likely incorrect comments?

I won't argue with you, maybe NOKIA N9 and NOKIA N900 has the best switcher between open applications (at least for you), but I'm totally disagree with you that NOKIA N9 and NOKIA N900 is good for multitasking. Single-core CPU isn't good for multitasking!

I agree that webos is better than android. app switching and multitasking on the webos is just efficient and beautiful. android has this ugly app switcher that only shows you icons of apps. the n9 and the n900 along with webos currently have the best app switcher and multi tasking capability

I'm torn between this and the N9. I guess it'll come down to availability in the Philippines and pricing

Manufacturers spend a lot of time designing technology of CPU. Software can be optimized and "eat" less CPU resources, but only good software isn't inaf, good software won't make much work without a good CPU!

Whats all the fuss abt gigahertz thing?? remember old days when we had intel dual-core P4 3.4GHz, now look at today's dual core 1.8GHz, and they are faster than those old multi GHz things.. so, personally i dont trust this gigahertz factor.. what matters most for the smartphone is battery life, smooth transitions, good battery backup, stable operation. one is not going to edit and resample the videos on phone.. instead of good software, manufacturers are focusing more and more on the GHz thing..
