    dual processors on the Motorola Droid

    I've heard the motorola droid has dual processors? can anyone confirm/deny?

    I just ordered it today, but I'm considering refusing the package to wait for the HTC passion... if it comes to verizon. Any thoughts on this? Is the HTC passion worth waiting for? Hardware pros and cons vs. the motorola droid? any input would be appreciated, I have like a day to make the decision.

    The Droid has a CPu and GPU in it. The Passion will havve the 1GHZ Snapdragon processor in it, but no NO GPU. If it's worth waiting or not is up to you

    Given the rate of change on cell phones, you could wait for the "next new thing" pretty much forever. There will always be something new and hot coming down the road.

    nobody knows yet we don't even know how fast the Droid is, let alone a phone not even on the market.

    but the Passion will have the Sense UI, and may look sleeker (HTC is kickass). and it will be a fast phone. the key question is, WHEN will we see it in the US?

    Well try this link HTC Passion Dragon Snapdragon Google Phone Battle with iPhone, Droid Phone Reviews

    Hard to say what will be "faster', all I can say is the Droid rocks. When the Passion gets here. I'll be messing with that

    I have been looking around but haven't found the GPU spec. 550MHZ sounds right on the CPU. I can tell you from using the Droid since release week. Its VERY VERY good

    The thing is, both the TI OMAP 3430 and the Qualcomm Snapdragon are PLATFORMS, not discrete CPUs. The OMAP has the ARM Cortex A8 CPU core, The Snapdragon's Scorpion Applications Processor is very similar to the Cortex A8 (actually, I believe it IS an A8 core).

    The Snapdragon DOES have a GPU (unsure of what type, I believe it may be a custom OpenGL ES 2.0 accelerator), it's capabilities are:

    up to 22M triangles/sec and 133M 3D pixels/sec

    This is actually higher performance than the PowerVR SGX 530 built into the Droid's chipset, as that tops out at around 10M triangles/sec in the implementation used in the OMAP 3430.
