Re: Benchmarks

Apps developed with Android's NDK won't run on this phone (Pretty much the case of the Motorola RAZR I)
ARM processors are as powerful as they are because APPS are specially designed to run on them. An ARM Can't compare in versatility to a X86 processor and hertz by hertz an X86 will run circles around an ARM if you talk about raw mathematical and data processing power, which doesn't mean that it will perform better in the real world.

ARM based Android phones nowadays will often perform consistently better than their x86 counterpart in most (the very most) applications because Android was developed for ARM first.

I'd like to see this low power x86 CPUs being implemented in tablets with more specialized (or at least widely compatible) platforms as Windows RT. Or another specialized version of android for Tablets (like honeycomb) and business phones that can take advantage of the versatility and potential of an x86.
