    yeah, but dual core does not always mean twice as fast, software will only utilise the dual cores if it has been written with dual core in mind, meaning software written prior to the chips release will run roughly at the same speed as they would on the single core chip with that same clock speed

    p.s. does anyone know if the phone will have a macro function ?

    This is +very+ close to the device I want – I was on deck to buy an 8125, but it lacked native GPS (outboard Bluetooth isn’t a huge deal, but it seems simple to integrate).

    Any word on a “slide-out” keyboard version (ala, 8125) with all the same features (2MP cam, 11G, etc.)

    Thanks –

    DT
