For those who are asking why mobile phone need such processor like a 1.2GHz dual-core or even higher ?
1) It need for such things like a Full HD Video Recording and Playback.
2) For a real Adobe Flash support.
3) For fast Web Page loading (processing).
4) For fast photo/video gallery thumbnail preview generation.
5) For faster applications loading.
6) For fast switch between apps and keep them running in the background.
7) For latest mobile games.

mike, 12 Apr 2011what is the meaning of java- via third party application and what are the good application Hi,
While most Android applications are written in Java, there is no Java Virtual Machine in the platform and Java byte code is not executed. Java classes are compiled into Dalvik executables and run on the Dalvik virtual machine. Dalvik is a specialized virtual machine designed specifically for Android and optimized for battery-powered mobile devices with limited memory and CPU. J2ME support can be provided via third-party-applications.
Android does not use established Java standards, i.e. Java SE and ME. This prevents compatibility among Java applications written for those platforms and those for the Android platform. Android only reuses the Java language syntax, but does not provide the full-class libraries and APIs bundled with Java SE or ME. However, there are multiple tools in the market from companies such as Myriad Group and UpOnTek that provide J2ME to Android conversion services.
Its finally coming to the UK may 1st!! my contact ends on may 5th so i am just waiting to get my hands on this bad boy. i just wish vodaphone would offer unlimited internet data plans since that will be one of the main uses for me. i also really want android devs to make a native android video calling app like facetime. would be so much easier and better quality than qik etc. maybe in the next android 2.4? oh and saying samsung is copying iphone is like saying the mac copied pc.. its silly guys stop..

Anonymous, 12 Apr 2011lol at the comments such as it is an 'iphone copy' Yeh cause 1.2 x 2 processor, 8 megapixel ca... moreIts probably more of a general comment. One can see the subtle influence that iPhone has on Samsung. Compare the change in shape from Galaxy S to Galaxy S2, from slight curve to more straight lines, just like iPhone 3GS to iPhone 4.
An even more direct example would be the Galaxy Tabs, where Samsung themselves admitted they went back to the drawing board, to change it, after seeing the iPad 2 launch.
So, direct copies? Probably not, but the influence is surely there, as admitted by Samsung themselves.
