"Those apps cannot really take advantage of multiple cores."
To rephrase that line... "They CAN run, but are NOT OPTIMIZED to do so."
I was blown on the last paragraph. Famicom games on the PC? I assure you are using an emulator?
Speaking of 16-bit games on the PC, I still play Object on my 32bit XP partition.
hi guys. can somebody tell me why this phone and many other high end unlocked phones still lacking 4G capabilities? whats the use? i own nokia c6-01 on att network and regular internet it is ok. but when it comes to watch videos they pause a lot specially youtube. (NOTE) I'M TALKING WHEN TETHERING ON MY LAPTOP,WHEN USING PHONE BY IT SELF EVERYTHING RUNS GOOD EVEN VIDEOS. if it was a 4G phone would i notice any difference when tethering? any advice or comment? thanks.

actually, Applications written for single core can run on multi cores. it's the other way around. Applications for multicores can't be used on single cores since processing power and speed is radically decreased.
That's why for games and applications...for example on a PC, there is a notification there that says must have atleast Intel Celeron(eg) or higher. Meaning to say the application requires that specific CPU but would work on more advance one.
Have you tried playing BATTLE CITY or PACMAN in a PC? that was written for a 16bit family computer.

very much correct. I wonder how WP would fair on pureview technology and if devs has already apps in mind for this.

I dont like Windows though since its a walled garden like iOS. I do like the Xbox Live integration since im also a Xbox user as well.
I believe this is just a beta. Nokia would be reeasing a Lumia Pureview. so i guess WP will be the OS for this technology.
kasaija, 11 Apr 2012It would have beem with more than 250ppi/pixel density.Use the "Search Opinions" function. Search for "app compatibility". There you will find the answer.

Q. Is the phone made out of polycarbonate?
A. Yes, but with a ceramic-like finish. Other materials used include stainless steel for the buttons and switches and camera bezel and Gorilla glass for lens protection and for the display.
AnonD-50006, 11 Apr 2012I just wonder why Nokia uses Belle on this more-than-smart phone. I wish it use, well at least... moreBelle is actually the best choice for this. The hardware requirements for Belle (as with other Symbian versions) are low. The camera module was specifically made for the Symbian platform. As for Windows Phone, its restrictions rival that of the iOS. The biggest fault if WP is that it does not have sideloading support.
Remember how iOS requires iTunes to save music to the device? Well, WP requires Zune. No bluetooth transfer of mp3's either.
Android is very poorly optimized. It requires more powerful hardware to run smooth such as dual-core CPU, powerful GPU, 1GB RAM, huge battery life. These components are not cheap, and will definitely increase the price of the phone.
Besides, a dual-core phone may not be practical. The OS might be programmed to use multiple cores, but you can't say the same for apps. Almost all apps are written for single-core only. Those apps cannot really take advantage of multiple cores.
I just wonder why Nokia uses Belle on this more-than-smart phone. I wish it use, well at least, Windows Phone. Yet I really wish Nokia launch the Android phone instead of ever-decreasing Symbian & Mango's handsets.
does this phone has a native SIP client, as it has in most of the Nseries and Eseries phones. for example in my N79 nokia has provided a native SIP client which works with any voip serivce provider
