"The OMAP3430 is a SOC (system on a chip) that's basically all the components of a motherboard and basically all the components of a motherboard and an integrated GPU on a single chip. Why add a second GPU on a second chip instead of specifying a different SOC design? The whole purpose of the SOC is integration (reduced component costs) and reduced power usage. A dedicated GPU goes reduced power usage. A dedicated GPU goes against the whole design philosophy."
I would like confirmation on this too.
I'm not flaming the OP, but if the Nexus was the best phone, you would not have taken it back. It's only the best phone if it works. This one still has some wrinkles to get ironed out. It also can only be the best phone if it is on the best phone network, because no matter how fast the processor or how many features you have, if you cannot use it because of a weak network then it isn't the best phone. The best network in the US for most folks is VZW. The best smartphone on VZW right now is the Droid (even though it has it's issues). Next month it may be something else, maybe even the Nexus once it is on VZW. Now if you need a world phone that is a different story. The best phone is all about reliablity, usability (strong network).
container A will have individualized areas that make it easy for you to quickly identify and sort through what you want.
container B will be a mash of everything you've thrown in there and you'll get lost trying to find every little piece.
while the GPU is not a separate chip on a different bridge within a subsystem, it is being compartmentalized to be more efficient and act like it were.
I want a phone that works, coverage etc.
I want device support without being bounced around.
