    PCs barely make use of multicore cpus...seems like overkill or possibly even a battery killer for mobile devices.

    When I can get everyday PC software that properly utilizes a quad core, we can THINK about putting them in phones.

    Hell the dual core phones are coming out in a few months. I am with you guys, Id rather have optimized software that didn't suck the living hell out of my battery over elventy core processors.

    That's just it, multiple cores on the same die use little extra power than a single core processor does. It's (almost) free processing power.

    Software does need to support multithreading for a single app to make use of multiple cores, but if you're running two normal cpu intensive apps they each essentially get their own processor.

    Try mac software :)

    Also - get me a robust cellular network with decent data speeds. The US’s cell tech sucks.

    Sigh.....

    Computers are getting to the point where they're like a 1500 horse power car. No one can really use the power they're putting out outside of a few select people. Even then, most people are limited by the video card and not the 4GZ X4 processor.
