    It's been a big deal in multi-core server setups for years upon years. Once we start getting multi-core phones we'll start getting multi-threaded apps to take advantage of it. Expect it first in games since they're the most-demanding on the CPU and GPU anyway.

    And sorry if I'm wrong on a few of the details, I've been taking threaded applications for granted for years on my PC, so I'm a little rusty on my research. Essentially that's accurate, if in spirit alone.

    So you just listed the Droid X with a different processor and no front camera. I mean, really, current AndroidOS flies on my 1Ghz processor and a front facing camera is a novelty. Do you actually expect to carry a conversation holding yoru phone at arms length or so in front of you. How about having to sit at a table when you want to make a call. Its ridiculous. How many people have a webcam built into the bezel of their laptop/netbook and never use it. Its just a selling point that has no real value.
    This. I definitely agree. Normal phone conversations > Video Phone conversation for the sole purpose that the majority of the population do not have video chat capable phones.

    If they could pull it off with all of the copyrights and everything and make a deal... I think jello would be an awesome name for the j version
