most important 1ghz+ with better battery life. that is the biggest improvement here. what do they mean by together 1.2ghz? 2 times 600 is 1200 but still 600mhz x2 so what is it?

He dual core processor is just like the current Snapdragon. It will scale (use only the power needed. Example: App needs 700mhz power, it will only use that much). So it will be 1.2Ghz dual core, so acting as 2 - 1.2Ghz processor's. They're will eventually be a 1.4/1.6Ghz dual core as well. I work for Qualcomm as mentioned before. HTC and Samsung are the only companies we have orders for at the moment.

Sprint Advertised the CRAP out of 4G whild Tmo is saying nothing about HSPA+ (Faster fast internet) really. Hopefully they are working on a Dual Core super Android phone to go head to head with Sprints EVO & ATT's iPhone 4G & VZW's killer growing line up of Super Droid phones. Tmo is the only company that can even be in the same league with Sprint right now Data wise so they better come wit it before the end of the summer other wise the subscribers will keep jumping ship to get the fastest phone on the market. HTC Vision HSPA+ please!

So has anyone thought of installing a faster processor into a phone. Like placing dual core or a 1.3GHz into the HTC thunderbolt? It has the 1GHz in it. I understand placing a new processor would majorly drain battery if its not placed in correctly, but what if you also changed the battery in the phone? as in used a whole different battery. Any ideas on the outcome? Should work shouldnt it?
