changing everything...again. cough cough... day before release they will probably scrap the quad core and go with the dual core for some reason. but hey, by appearing to go with quad core will certainly get all the attention once again! (even though by then quad core phones will already be on market)

Well of course there would already be quad core phones in the market before Apple releases their own. Remember that android devices get released every month, hahahahahaha

Too bad Android OS is so crippled it can't use more than one core. That's why its flails and stutters on dual core phones when even a single core iPhone 4 is smooth.

Holy s**t are you spying on me? As far as I knew the only people who had used my GNex were me and my girlfriend...

How do you know how my phone performs? I'm pretty sure it's smooth.

its a combination of factors like the live wallpapers, its code, the fact that it doesent run two cores at one time, unless it opens an aplication. you should stop just calling people idiots when you are the one who does not know what they are talking about

It doesn't matter if its already available in android devices,if the iphone 5 has a quad processor in it when its eventually released in sept/oct 2012 then its a certainty that it will then change everything again again

iPhone 12 Slogan:
"We've changed everything over and over, again and again, and now we've done it once more!"

Android doesn't rush things. The Manufacturers do. Don't blame an entire OS for other peoples' faults. (for gallitoking)

Looking at the other HTC article about their lost revenue, it's obvious that they need to stick to what Apple does: creating a SOLID and GREAT phone and updating it. The Evo line is...okay? I have an Evo 3D which was the first dual core to hit the states on a carrier, and that was great...but it wasn't as big a deal as the Evo 4G when that came out!

Iunno, it's just kind of a toss up. I will be getting an iPhone once a 4" comes. No questions. Especially if that mock up posted 12 hours ago is real...haha

Android does rush things.. Honeycomb was rushed and now is useless and obsolete ( a honeycomb tablet doesnt exited anyone anymore) .. the Nexus was rush in the announment back in Oct when clearly the nexus/ICS were not ready yet .. ( wanted to steal the thunder from Apple). I can go on but want to save my bullets for other fights/debates..

"Android doesn't rush things." -- you might want to check the android history books. Android was supposed to imitate RIM devices and when Apple released iOS 1.0, Android switched gears pronto. The early generations of android were a bit rushed.

ok trolls... listen up... Apple makes things better.. ok.. Android rushes things to be first.. but Apple takes their time and makes it better... Siri told me to say that... and understand my accent.. so the light is green... keep moving

Well, yeah. Apple doesn't have to rush to do things first because even if someone else does it first they can always advertise it as new and people buy into it.

I wouldn't rush either...

I am not an iphone fan but i will surely tell you that windows phone don't need quad-core and not even iphone needs a quad core. Android just needs it because it is not as responsive as the other two(but its still darn responsive). Just ask yourself do you need a quad core? If yes. Then for what use which a single processor phone can't(not talking about the speed or graphics(android) like i said iphone and windows phone doesn't make a difference). You want it just for bragging rights so you can tell another os fan that his prefered os doesn't have a quad core. Just think about it. If manufacturers want to release quad core fine don't have a problem with it. But seriously we don't need it. There's a difference between want and need. That's it.

android doesnt rush. they just release things that are possible. at least we have access to it. you dont want quad core in your iphone? of corse you do. dont be silly.

is it rushed to put a quad core in the phone? just put one in. it can only make the phone faster.

keep thinking your phones are 'perfected' and that they arent just late to the party.

last party i attended i was leaving when apple and the isheeeeep were just arriving. on to the next!

Android has always rushed out bug riddled product. I've had Droids for 2 years and they gave been beta products at best compared to iPhone.

Android's version of dual and quad core is irrelevant since the Android OS is crippled and cannot use more than once core.

If you've had Droids for two years that means you've had Droids pretty much since they first started being somewhat popular.

Obviously a new OS is going to have disadvantages over something like the iPhone which had been in people's hands for some time before the Droids became even close to mainstream.

To say they were beta products compared to the iPhone is perfect. So the fact that you know that yet continue to bash Android says something about you.

It took the iPhone HOW LONG to do MMS? Let's talk about beta products.

Sorry, Apple waits until something has been out for 1 to 2 years before they put it in their product and call it new and great.

Example Siri: Customer said to me "Yeah, it's cool you can text with your voice!"

My response: "I have been doing that on my phone for over 2 years now. It's nothing new, just new to the iphone. There a bit behind."

Customer "Oh..."

you are only giving half truths. as Siri is way better that google voice... you know why people dont use google voice.... because it sucked.. with Siri it doesnt suck.. is much simplier... in other words.. better...

So if you are already in a text message on an iPhone can you press a microphone button on the keyboard and dictate text? Because I can on my Android and it works flawlessly.

If the new iPhone with Siri can do that then my comment is pointless but as far as I know it's not capable of that. You can definitely voice-text but not if you are already inside an application where you would be typing.

Anywhere on my GN where I would enter text using the keyboard all I have to do is press the mic button and say whatever I want.
