    What phone will you buy between these two and why?

    The Sony Psp phone

    or

    The Nexus S

    I wonder though on the Nexus S why a dualcore can Android even recognize dual cores let alone utilize dual cores what about the software?

    1. dont know till i see them

    2. dont know till i get full specs

    3. not even an option, unless it is on sprint

    4. will have to have a big dev backing for me to want it. Nexus S should be huge in this department.

    5. dont know till I know what else will be available to compete against it.

    6. Dont know till pricing is released.

    i guess I just dont know...... ;) :p

    The PSP phone is just a big marketing scam. It's just a regular phone with a D-Pad that's not affiliated with other playstation consoles/handheld. It just tries to take a boost with the same name.

    As for dual cores. From Gingerbread (2.3) on, Android supports dual cores.

    IT IS NOT A PSP PHONE. If it has any sony gaming affiliation (which we actually have zero confirmation of) it will be called Playstation phone and not PSP phone. The difference there is huge...

    If I were to consider the PSP phone, I would wait and see how strong a gameslist and backing it receives. It has the potential to do well and the potential to flop. The thing that worries me is I just don't see people signing contracts JUST for a phone. If it doesn't have exclusive games, I'd rather just have a standalone PSP or PSP go (when my battery dies on a PSP, I am not left without a phone). If the games are exclusive, it leaves me wondering how many people will actually pick up this unit. The average handheld gamer can't afford that contract that would be involved in owning one of these things, so that will definitely hurt sales I think.

    So aside from this name (and I am curios, how are you so sure this will be the name if you aren't even sure there will be one?), why exactly does it matter what we call it?

    Well, the OS would need to support the dual cores, of course. Are you thinking that the OEM's developing dual core devices are just taking the Android OS as-is without dual core support and slapping it on the device?
