    Well, first of all, where did this info come from? All they are saying is that their source says the Nexus S has the Orion processor, but they themselves cannot verify that it's 100% true and have to trust their source. That's all. Nothing contradicting, but if they are going to say it's "confirmed," then they better post some kind of proof rather than just stating about it.

    The OP is a moron. The source contradicts what he wrote in the title, and he didn't leave a link or anything.

    so dual core only means one processor @1ghz with a gpu on the same chip, right?

    Wow strong words tough guy. It was posted on xda and engadget. I would think a tech savvy guy like yourself would have known that. Considering it was all over the internet that day.

    no it means 2 CPU cores and 1 GPU on the SoC. cpu cores will most likely be running around 500-700MHz.

    Thanks, because someone said a dual core meant an integrated CPU/GPU chip....

    SO a dual 500mhz phone is 'like' a 1Ghz phone in terms of raw performance...but a big positive is being able to run on only 4 or 6 "cylinders" for battery life...?
    :D

    Yes there is more raw processing power at the same overall clock speed. And it will have better battery life.

    1Ghz means 1Ghz... not 500-700Ghz. if the nexus s does have the orion dual core cpu running at 1Ghz, then it'll run at that speed. it will have two cores, both of which run at 1GHz. so what is the advantage of a dual core cpu if they're not going to up the processing speed? simple, look at your task manager. go into your apps, look at the apps you have running, or even the stuff running in the background or services. multi-core processors are designed to handle multiple tasks. they don't have a faster clock speed, they just handle multiple tasks. with the phones we have today, we are running just as many tasks on our phones than on a computer. since these phones are running so much, they have grown the need for multi-core processors. if it has a dual core 1GHz cpu, it will run at 1GHz. the only time you will notice the difference between that and the hummingbird 1GHz, is when running multiple tasks.. or gaming. the cpu isn't faster than the hummingbird, just much more efficient!

    Also, I recall reading that the GPU for the Nexus S is supposed to be a quad core at 300 Mhz.

    Wow google, way to suck!
    This totally doesn't match up to the release of the nexus one.

    Well, yes, but with NFC, gyros and software noise-cancellation. And most important of all, it's an unlocked phone with OS updates directly from Google. No crapware!

    This is definitely my next phone.

    Did you know that Nexus S doesn't have MicroSD slot? You're basically stuck with 16GB that it comes with. Completely unacceptable.

    If you already have Nexus One phone - there is simply no reason to upgrade.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking. But then I noticed he doesn't have a N1.. So maybe the N S isn't such a horrible choice then.. Not everyone needs more then 16Gig in a phone.

    I'm sure sticking to my N1 tho.

    I'd love to have a Nexus One. But they don't make them anymore, and they were never for sale in my country anyway.

    No card slot? Just like the very popular iPhone then, so obviously not much of a deal-breaker. My current 4GB card has about 3.5GB free. When I outgrow the 16GB, it's probably time to trade in for the Nexus 3.

    This could well be the first popular Google Nexus phone. If it sells in large numbers, then that would mean critical mass for the NFC technology. It would also be a showcase of a better phone experience, namely no carrier lock-in, and no carrier-supplied crapware. And OS updates for years and years! I would not consider getting the Nexus S if I wasn't stuck on Android 2.1 (thanks a bundle, Samsung! :mad: ).

    I'm wondering if I should get this phone or wait for next flagship from whomever makes it with the dual 1GHz CPU.

    I'm still on my old iPhone 3GS which works but I have used Android on tablets and I just love it so next phone will be an Android.

    Kind of pointless when unlocked yet only works on only one set of bands (900/1900), no go for us on 850/1700/2100.
