How stupid is a phone like this with a 1ghz processor? Obviously the price will NOT be on par with low ends from other companies.

And that doesn't chang the truth that multi-core CPU is better for multitasking than single-core CPU.
Anonymous, 18 Jul 2011But there would be one still.Exactly!
Also remember that different SoCs usually place different GPUs and other accelerator.
Nokia Rules, 18 Jul 2011I know. Nokia used an older CPU on their S^3 devices but Nokia is now leapfrogging the compet... moreThis point of view is totally valid
In fact, Nokia will rule the "basic" phone market, since their lower spec phones will have 1 GHz proc, not even Samsung, LG have cheap phones with this specs.
So, Nokia maybe will not lead the high en market, but they will control the base one with powerful basic phones..
In fact only 13% of the actual buyers get an Smartphone and the rest will gat any phone below 250 dlls.
This is a wise move, if you can make affordable phones with cheap prices you will get better sales...
@Laurynas... It isn't true at all... it depend on the software too (the OS and the Apps need to be coded properly to take advantage of the multi-core CPU's)
Anonymous, 18 Jul 2011S-E X10, IS single core and NOT even 1ghz and IS multitasking. SGS1, is single core, is 1ghz ... moreI didn't said that multitasking on single-core CPU is impossible! I have said that multitasking on single-core CPU never will be so good like on multi-core CPU. And it is not my statement, it is technical fact!
Nokia's not giving these phones 1GHz for multitasking purposes, but for browser performance. Have you used the browser on the Touch and Type devices? It's close to unusable.
can't understand what d finns want 2 do by giving so much 2 a s40 device,
they dont even suppport multitasking
Laurynas, 18 Jul 2011No, the difference may be huge. For example Motorola ATRIX use the same CPU as Samsung Gala... moreNo, that's because of that slow piece of crap UI known as motoblur and SGSII's 1.2 GHz clock speed. For a fair comparison install a mod on both phones, same mod, overclock atrix to 1.2 GHz and then compare. You'll see the difference isn't that much.
eddman, 18 Jul 2011The difference is so small, it doesn't really count, and since when different voltage results ... moreNo, the difference may be huge.
For example Motorola ATRIX use the same CPU as Samsung Galaxy S II (I9100), but we can see difference! Why? Beacause of different SoCs. Motorola ATRIX use Tegra 2 SoC, Samsung Galaxy S II (I9100) use Exynos 4210 (a.k.a. Orion) SoC. Different SoC = different architecture = different performance.
nokia have surely gone mad this will make no financial sense years of being behind other manufacturers now putting 1ghz inside a phone that doesnt need it.
[deleted post]imma C7 user too, but this wont make me angry or jealous of the new nokia 1Ghz lineup, more like a worry how the bat3 backup would be like, i.e would the extra proc be a good thing when its come to general everyday use? or nokia new symbian line up will suffer the same prob like android based phone.....resource hunger monster

Anyway Single-co... moreS-E X10, IS single core and NOT even 1ghz and IS multitasking.
SGS1, is single core, is 1ghz and is one of the fastest multitasking phone around still.
Good combination of architecture with a modern OS, and you can get usable multitasking on a mobile device.
Why are these nokia people wasting time and money with the symbians ,they are launching with 1ghz same c3 modelNDROIDs plz nokia shake hands with ANDROIDS !!!
@all symbian fans ! i want ask you please ! i saw a lot people said symbian os not support 1ghz CPU , is that true ! if yes than ! than what are symbian teams doing more than 10years ? look to android , ios windows mobile 6.5 windows phone 7 even webos and bada support 1ghz :-) . but bad luck why symbian not support what is wrong :( . symbian need powerfull CPU and more ram :-)
Nokia's model numbers are getting worse. People in the trade can't follow it, not to mind customers.
Whoever names Nokia's phones needs to be sacked.
C3-01.5 etc make no sense.
Bring back n series, e series etc.
Nokia Rules, 18 Jul 2011That only applies to Android. 1 GHz is great for Symbian but we all know it's not enough for ... moreActually, I was talking about multitasking, not about OS.
Also remember that the same 1Ghz CPU isn't equal to the same CPU if they are on the different SoCs.
