battery was updated so we will see, despite that I can always buy a slim extended battery like I did for my EVO so I'm not worried Smile

Correct...asynchronous processing's biggest plus is the boost in battery life. No other dual core has this feature yet either.

No, actually, the battery life should be decent.

First, it has a huge battery. It's over 1700 mAh.

Second, the dual-core processor has asynchronous power management, meaning each core only runs as fast as it needs to. So if you only need one core, you only use one core worth of power. If you need 1 1/2 cores, one will run at full power and the other at half. Other dual-core mobile processors (cough, Tegra, cough) don't do that.
