Facepalm..
XPERIA ARC/ARC S IS OFFICIALLY UPGRADED TO ICS.

And I can assure you that it works just as smooth as in this video even on stock gingerbread.
I own one.

oh calm down. I didnt check its update history. So that makes what.. 2 phones with single core and official ICS updates? lol

My SGS1 runs pretty damn flawlessly with ICS and its a single core with 512mb ram as well, so i dont doubt that it can happen. My SGS1 with ICS rom outscores my T2 based JB Rom'ed tablet on benchmarks.

ya, i got that..your point?
i've no beef with that :p
Hummingbird rocks

my beef was with your accusation based on ignorance. snapdragon S2 can run just fine, and the video was credible in that regard.

Well, well....Seems like Qualcomm feels trheatened enough by the behemoth Intel entering this market, that needed to push out a video with a beta competitive unit, that hasn't been on the market yet, to prove what? The future holds the answer boys, and the people at Qualcomm sure ain't relaxed...

Hmmm, I wonder what OS version they're using on the handsets. In my experience, My Inspire 4g (which had a Snapdragon S2) wasn't super slow and anything like that in day to day use. Web browsing wasn't bad either, with pinch to zoom operating similarly to the video (maybe a little less smooth). But it also was running Froyo/Gingerbread so I think it's pretty good. Idk why it gets the crap that it does, considering it is from 2010.

So crapdragon doing well huh? Impressive I must say, the pinch to zoom seemed as fluid as WP and iOS!

Where did you fell from?
This isn't even a new "crapdragon" - it's an OLD single core!.

And the irony.. the pinching/scrolling actions actually looked sub-par, based on my experience with the Xperia Arc.
But then again, i use Opera mini and Dolphin - it works buttery smooth, especially on Opera.
