Totally agree with you! 1MP camera is a BIG disappointment!

Yes, but isn't a camera period a BIG improvement over the first version? I guess adding even this weak camera was just beyond Apple to put it on the first version?

Fact: It took Apple until the Iphone 4 to put a camera flash on the device. Opinion: Given the history of incremental steps, there is no way this information could be true. It would be nice, but it's to big of a leap given Apple's history.

I agree with Achilles: apple takes its time and you sheep flock to the stores and buy these things. LMAO - hey next year the ipad 3 will have, wait, .......wait......... a 6MP camera instead of 5! OOOOOOooooOOO!!! You apple people are funny too. I know this dope who has the iphone 4 with a flash on it - yeah a flash for the camera! He goes around showing off saying opnly apple could manage a flash on a phone. *silence*.............Dude, my sony erricson back in 1995 had a flash on the camera. Basically, if apple built an airplane today in the news tomorrow it would state that apple invented flight. They use old technology and are now catching up becasue they are falling behind. The only thing they do well is make a simple device so everyone can use it - it's like taking my commador 64 and making it user friendly so everyone loves it. Now, the boast dual-core ----come on we have that already out there - Christ the Atrix has frigg'n dual core! Go away apple and DIE JOBS!

Not exactly. It was said to have been pitted up against the Bionic and a Samsung phone and was said to be faster than both, but no one has seen the actual benchmark tests the person in the video speaks of.
And seeing as there have been benchmarks of the Thunderbolt and Bionic that we have actually seen and the Bionic always came out on top...I doubt what the person claims.
And I seriously doubt it is outperforming the dual core LG phone and the Atrix.

Although the Thunderbolt does have a lil extra Ram, so it might be possible, but all benchmarks we have actually seen says otherwise.

Possibly the Orion chip from Samsung as well.
