SDRAM was running at 3.3 volts i believe, and DDR brought this down to about 2.5. DDR2 lowered the voltage to 1.9, and ddr3 can go to 1.5 volts or below. Also, the ram in phones is run at an even lower voltage, being specially made for low power platforms.

    Power used is offset by the ram running at higher speeds. You will not see any difference in battery life from the ram, i dont think.

    But this is purely speculation. Ask all you want, but we will not truly know until these phones are released into the wild and compared.

    Without a doubt more memory will help the current Android OS design use less battery power. The 768K RAM will be at a lower power level than the 8Gig RAM used to feed programs for loading. So the less loading of application you have to do, the less power you will use. Of course this power saving is still very low because of the overall screen, 3g/4g chips and wifi power draws, but it is still a savings.

    Thunderbolt on April 10th

    Thunderbolt because:
    -the bionic wont have any software the utilizes both cores yet
    -the bionic is locked
    -the bionic wont come out until way after I get my upgrade (I get it late March)
    -32gb SD on the TB
    -HTC has been known to do great things
    April 10th, I get Thunderbolt!!!

    Interesting question! I would like to know the answer to this as well.

    768 K? Oh dear. I was hoping for at least a full MB. ;-)
