    Will we be able to overclock those too?!? Can't wait! I'm sure they'll be great hand warmers too.

    Wow. dual Snapdragon chips at 1.5 overclocked would practically match my 3 year old HP laptop which has Intel Centrino Duo at 1.66. This is freakin' unreal how far these chips have come so fast. :icon_ banana:

    Question is what is the limit for power in a cellphone device, eventually the battery demands and processor heat will stop this growth...right? Right???

    We now know what is going to be in the droid 2. The droid that is under clocked at 550, it is going to be sick what processing speeds the phones will be able to reach. By then they will have a battery capable of handling the loads,along with a better keyboard.
