    We still have yet to see the 1.2GHz and 1.3GHz chips of the world, but Qualcomm’s already set to ship their 1.5GHz Snapdragon QSD8672 chipset to handset manufacturers before year’s end. The chip will be dual-core, but their focus isn’t limited to getting this into handsets (though that will definitely be sweet) – they’re looking [...]

    Even with 45nm chips, this thing is going to be a hog. No point having the fastest phone on earth if it only lasts five hours between charges.

    I dont think it will be a battery hog:

    Snapdragon vs. Hummingbird vs. OMAP - the mobile CPU war beyond 1GHz page2 (Phone Arena News)
    On a 1000 mAh battery? That would be amazing if that holds true.

    On the next page in that article:

    If that holds true too....I would probably steer clear of a Tegra 2 chip. Hopefully thats old news or pray the Tegra 2 graphics chip can be paired with an OMAP, Intel, Snapdragon, or Hummingbird.

    Dont ask me how in the world a dual core, even one at 45nm, can seem to have better battery life than a single core, 45nm chip. ...lol

    Yea it looks like HTC will be the first to drop a dual core phone. Thats ok, I'll still get a Motorola...lol
