I don't believe every phone needs a snapdragon processor or to be the next "super phone" like the evo or nexus one.. But, lets be honest here.. at&t needed a home run and this is strike two... I don't have a problem with the phone itself.. and it would probably be great for a starter phone for someone who has never used android before.. However, as someone who is more conscious of the tech I'm running.... the 600 mhz processor is horribly dissapointing.. I can see a snapdragon processor still being updated, working great and running anything I would need to run on a phone.. (sure that will change over time... ) But, lets face it.. I have a computer sitting by my tv that the snap dragon is more powerful than... I don't know if its true froyo pushes the snapdragon to get more performance out of the n1 than the ipad.. but, avoiding putting out snapdragon means that even if they get a snap dragon.. it will be after iphone 4.. and froyo will be after iphone 5.. I can handle snapdragon even if it is slower than iphone 4.. I can live with that.... however, its not like att even really has a high end android phone.. Oh well.. anything att gets.. it butchers.. hopefully there will always be an unsubsidized n1.
