    Not dual core processor, come on man!

    Okay, here’s some clarification (or perhaps more confusion)…According to Qualcomm’s own website, the MSM8255 is NOT listed under the dual-core category, yet this is the description they give:

    “The MSM8x55 chipset platform consists of the MSM8255â„¢ and MSM8655â„¢ and features a newly designed and optimized multimedia sub-system over previous Snapdragon generations.

    * MSM8255 support for HSPA+ networks – up to14 Mbps downloads and 5.76 Mbps uploads
    * MSM8655 support for HSPA+ networks – up to 14.4 Mbps downloads and 5.76 Mbps uploads – as well as CDMA2000 1X, 1xEV-DO Rel 0/A/B”

    So it looks like these are just two built-in radios?

    The MSM8x60 chipset on the other hand IS listed as third-gen dual core and described as follows:

    “MSM8x60 chipset platform consists of the MSM8260â„¢ and MSM8660â„¢.

    Scorpion asynchronous dual-CPU cores, up to 1.2GHz for faster response and processing ”

    Soooo yeah….hopefully that clears things up? Or not? Does one have a CPU and GPU and the other actually have a real dual core CPU? Either way, if they could get away with calling the MSM8255 a dual-core or dual-processor platform I’m sure they would….it’d be a huge marketing buzz word….but they aren’t, so I think it’s safe to say this phone has a single core cpu.
