It also supports LTE and also support great games on future devices of Windows Phone 8 and on Xperia phones.

But,is it power effecient?! Exynos3(S3) is reasonably more power effecient with excellent standby/idling power consumption!

Windows phone will be a failure and if Nokia continues with MS, then it will be comitting suicide. Abandon windows or use it, along with Android, symbian, as well as Meego if possible. Putting all the eggs in one basket is a risky stupid strategy that elop (cannot find the word that desribes his level of stupidity or... maybe conspiracy) is currently doing.

Of course it crushes the Tegra 3 ... The clock in the nexus is lower plus It's 40nm or 45nm I think while the snapdragon is 28nm an and it's a adopt adoptation of A15 made while Tegra uses a A9... That's a big different, if Tegra 3 crushed the snapdragon.. Then I would be suprised

What is the point of this. You can use a SIII or a candy bar Nokia to make a call and send sms's. That is the vast majority of the use of a mobile phone. In most countries it is still too expensive to use the internet on a mobile, and why bother in any case, so then we have games, cameras, and videos. What is happening is people where they can are are playing games on the net from their mobiles and hogging bandwidth with pointless addict habits. Is this what faster chips are all about, nothing more than gaming. Where is the real software development and not just Android spyware for all things Google. I am interested in the next phase in software, not games or rubbish facebook integration.

This will run best on Windows Phone 8. Windows Phone is optimized for Snapdragon chips, none others.
