Some people dont find a 1 ghz processing unit necessary. Besides, this is a low end "first time smartphone user's" kind of phone. Those who have never used a smartphone probably wont care what kind of processor is running. And 600mhz isn't all that bad to begin with. However, I see your point. You think they would more so innovate and move forward with technology instead of moving backwards with old technology. I can see in a few years, 1 ghz being a standard.

Actually 600mhz is a dead end street. High end games won't work, the phone in general won't run as smooth, and the real killer is that android 3.0 requires 1ghz so it will never be upgraded. 600mhz is both old news and behind the times.

Actually, 600mhz is not outdated. Most people don't even know what version of Android they are using. Much less the processor. Whats more is that they don't care. The care about the performance, and if its good, then most don't care about whats under the hood.

Not to mention that you're paying the same amount with the data plan. Im sorry but when it comes to smartphones, high end or not at all.
