Oh yeah baby. Nokia/Microsoft is getting serious now, going head to head with Android phone manufacturers in term of specs.

Does Windows Phone 8 have support for Qualcomm's Cortex-A5 processors? Would go great with the nHD resolution

Hmm folks I think Microsoft from the beginning should have had it's Windows smart phone team do the Windows RT tablet instead of the Windows 8 team because they knew how to write programs for the ARMS CPU Chips that are used on Windows7/8 smart phones , Android and Apple iphones. It seems form now that will happen and a developer now will only have to make a few changes in a Windows 8.1 smart phones app to make it run on a Surface 2 tablet which uses ARMS CPU's. it also means Windows 8.1 OS RT tablets in the near future will run an app that is designed to run on Windows 8.1 smart phones.
