the MSM8260 (the chip in the htc sensation) isn't inferior to the Samsung exynos - I think it's a bit more power efficient
WP 7 will be the best!! Is the latest mobile os with great potential .we soon will recieve Skype and multitasking .. Wp will be the king of os for mobiles.. My focus rocks and wp7 galaxy s2 will do much more on wp..good idea Samsung ..
samsung produce low quality product & cheating people with huge propaganda

Hint: its never been about processor speeds.
I'm buying Nokia N9 next and I'm really exited about it even though it has "only" 1 GHz single core.
Still, its great to see WP7 gaining some speed too. Competition is really important in the long run. Apple vs. everyone else making similar Android devices gives way too little choice.

this is in anticipation of nokia's wp phone. samsung is hitting on all front. they are learning from nokia's past mistake and are rolling out new phones at much faster pace than nokia which is still in shock about losing their market share so fast.
Samsung wp7 is all over the place and they are coming up with update for both the hardware and the software side of it and this should not bring up any issue at all.
I also do not see this affecting Nokia in any way. In the last press conference by Nokia, they made mention of Samsung making a great wp7 to drive the market in their favour.
Nokia has one of the best phone out there and they can still do it.
I have always heard people complain about platform, os, now they are even complaining about the CPU. If you like one phone go get it.
Some how windows phone 8 could rule the world with full integration with windows 8. Let's wait and see where it all goes from here.
a manufacturer starting to make available the same phone with a "menu" of OS. could be the start of something big...

The only case where an exynos is much faster is while running an application that utilizes NEON.
In non-NEON applications tegra 2 and exynos are almost matched clock-for-clock.
Exynos' big performance difference is because of its 1.2 GHz clock speed vs. tegra 2's 1.0 GHz.
eddman, 04 Jul 2011Wow, you are SO wrong. Snapdragons do NOT use Cortex-A8. They use Qualcomm's own designed core... moreYou should also note that not all A9 SOCs are same. Exynos uses NEON instructions, where something like Tegra 2 does not. Both Tegra 2 and Exynos 4210 use A9 architecture, but Exynos will literally eat Tegra 2. for breakfast.
Fongy, 04 Jul 2011That's a very good point...
If Nokia can differentiate themselves, I guess, similar to HTC ... morehaving seen and even use WP7 *mango makes me say that it is really worth it.. I can really tell WP has a great potential in making a great OS one day..
and with Nokia, i believe WP7 would be muched loved by many^^
much like the HTC in there "Sense 3.0" technology, i mean hands down.. "TouchWiz" looks awfull comparing the two..HTC had really run skin-deep customization and tweaks..not just skinning the OS... but making it like they own the OS..
it will be the same with NOkia WP.. they have microsoft's approval on tweaking the OS.. WP7 will completely look and feel different in Nokia..
lets just see^^ fingers crossed^^ hope for the better...

If Nokia can differentiate themselves, I guess, similar to HTC with Sense, then they could certainly position themselves slightly differently...
Especially if they could add widgets, etc. that other manufacturers aren't allowed to do... something that is radically different to what is on offer by other manufacturers...
HAVING SAID THAT
Just thinking about developers though - would you really start making specific bespoke widgets for one manufacturer who will be (to start with certainly) a small percentage within a small percentage market? Is it worth their time when you have mass-opportunity with iOS / Android?
Wow this should be good I like all the inter OS/phone manufacturer partnerships!
