Nokia has missed out on the smartphone market already. I can't see them getting a significant market share.

I have a nokia N900 that during operation at high capacity such as: Multi Tasking and Internet Use also Audio play, makes the battery Run down really fast...From graph analysis its discharge is great in relation to a few mins or hours. The Issue will always be The Battery Life. Nokia 3310, 1100 :) Super!

Improvement of Technology, Science...Improvement indeed...But In some ways I beg to differ...We have seen the poll according to this forum: http://www.tekedia.com/forum/index.php?topic=42.msg426#msg426 A mobile phone needs to have a battery that can last...very few of us will need these multi-core Handheld Laptop/GSM/3G Devices. Or have they invented a safe nuclear battery yet ? Even So this will require a great amount of energy also in discharge...and might be unsafe...

All Windows Mobile Phone 7 devices have a GPU. Probbaly needed for Silverlight.

@TXDigital: good inputs on the power management challenges that need to be addressed in hand-helds with or without dual core processors. It has to be a digital power management strategy that can effectively address many modes of operation in a smartphone with different power requirements (aided by software apps). @rick.merritt & @DJAus: are the GPU Silicons already available for hand-helds? If so, who makes them? Intuitively, I can see why @DJAus thinks GPU presence is more important than the multicore. In the end, price & performance are all that matter! MP Divakar

NO what I am saying is two fold: (a) Windows Phone 7 HAS a GPU hardware rqeuirement. (b) That GPU inclusion in a phone is more important than multiprocessors. No I'm not privy to scheduled WM7 updates. I think the first one is out now which addressed the lack of copy and paste.

@DJAus: Are you saying their is no support for hardware graphics acceleration in Windows Phone 7? That would be a major omission? And do you know when WinPhone7 is skeded to get multicore support?

More important than dual core with Windows Phone 7 is GPU capability. This is a hardware requirement of Windows Phone 7.

Multi-core may be good for infotainment service but I'm fed up to charge my phone every 5-6 hours after playing games and web browsing. Battery is a serious limitation! If people just blindly chase for higher processing power without improving the power consumption and efficiency, I rather switch back to the plain old phone that I can really rely on for days.

Windows Phone 7 came out while Windows Embedded Compact 7 was still under development. Compact 7 is CE7. There are definitely aspects of Phone 7 in Compact 7. There are many aspects of Compact 7 in Phone 7. Compact 7 does have multicore support for ARM and x86. You can turn a core if required. So what is needed is a Phone 7 refresh ( there are a few slated) that will catch up with the second RTM of Compact 7. (There have been two as the first one that was released to MSDN subscribers was pulled after 2 days).
