    I read about this earlier, but that article didn't have any info on the third core, it just said two of them would run at 1.5GHz. This sounds very good to me, and now that they have said it, I'm surprised no-one has done it before.

    Does seem a good idea providing the software takes advantage of this feature. I would imagine there are some good portable devices for 2011 can't wait think since I got my Desire I have taken more interst in this.

    I wonder how long it will take for us to see them in plug computer format.

    Advanced power-saving features also mean that the chip can play back a high-def video for around ten hours "on a single charge", though the manufacturer doesn't list the capacity of the battery.
    Yeah, sure it will Somehow I think the 'battery capacity' in testing was more akin to Russia's latest 'mobile' nuclear power plant

    They have gone one better and have experimental nuclear powered aircraft.

    Never seen this before - quite a cool little concept. Thanks for reference.
