    So everyone is getting excited for duocore phones rocking out on LTE but what will happen to battery life when a phone has to power two cores? And how much will big red charge for their new network speeds? $40? $50? $60???

    Any validity to my concerns?

    Throttling speed like its done now, and quite possibly turning off a core when its idling/not under heavy CPU usage.

    They probably will probably do something similar to Sprint. Add an extra fee for LTE service, until it is ubiquitous across their network like EVDO is now.
     
  3. I'm not worried about battery at all with the new dual core processors on phones, if you look at your battery usage the main use is screen and not the individual processes.

    What is LTE anyway? Been seeing it a lot recently and not really EXTREAMLY tech savvy.

    from what i understand, you'll actually be saving battery power because a dual core processor runs cooler
