DaRk MaDnEsS, 18 Jul 2011does this answer your desire http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_to_launch_four_new_1ghz_symbian... moredear but the still not announce 1ghz symbian device :-( . and the news about 1ghz four device is not sure .
Why 1ghz speed and 512mb RAM on S40? It uses java apps and doesn't multitask. Odd.

Because even the same CPU with the same architecture and the same clock speed (1Ghz), can be used on different architecture SoC and even with different voltage tweaking. That's mean even 1Ghz CPU running on the same versio Android OS, may have different performance, because of different SoC.
THe N8 getting old now and new stuff on the way just like every other company is doing..Fones take 12-18 months from start to finish so its natural progression and their new stuff is on way..N8 ,c7,c6 etc are getting old hat in tech years..N9 still most anticipated smartfone of this year and before that sgs 2..
i dont get why Nokia cant put the same chipset and RAM to their symbian 3 phones????? huh??? im sooo lost for words.. tsk tsk tsk..
Wow, that boat is being pushed out by nokia! Is that with time machine, 'cause it looks like 2009 again
cant wait for new S40 handset with a 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM, a ClearBlack capacitive display and hardware QWERTY keyboard.

with the way tech is moving and earth's resources getting depleted fast, your biatching are just peanuts. Have mercy on your children.
What a joke, a low-end device has 1GHz processor, will be any 3D accelerator?
S60 and S^3 phones with 680 mhz cpu are comparable in performance to 1 Ghz cpu in android phones. That's why nokia is going to give 1 Ghz to their S40 devices. To compete with android. Thanks to all feedbacks. NOKIA.

Anyway Single-core CPU isn't so good for multitasking!
A feature phone with 1 GHz. God these things are monsters. S40 is super efficient and leaps ahead on features too. If they put a feature phone price tag on that, competition doesn't stand a chance.
