    The thirst for power won't stop until we get cinema, CGI styled graphics out of our handhelds during gaming and graphics experiences. The same goes for consoles.

    People don't realize that multi-core can mean better battery life. Both cores can run at a lower clock and accomplish as much work. Or a core can be turned off when it is unneeded. Although mainly I would like to see a software and hardware (looks) on all devices. And a better GPU.

    The main benefit to going dual-core is that, surprisingly, dual-core processors actually improve battery life. A performance boost is always nice, but when it comes to any kind of mobile tech power consumption is a primary issue and multicore processing is definitely the way forward.

    Given the next few months will see the world's first wave of dual-core smartphones released to consumers, and rumours of possible quad-core phones by the end of 2011/beginning of 2012, it is almost unthinkable that Apple would release a single-core iPhone in mid-2011, especially given their track record in terms of phone technology.

    Just to explain for those that don't understand, adding a second core to a CPU doesn't make the chip use less power all by itself (and at the same clockspeed, under load, it will indeed use more).

    The power benefit comes from the fact that power consumption does not scale linearly with clock speed, and with multi-threaded workloads you get better power efficiency by running more threads at slower speeds.

    So compared to a single-core 1GHz CPU, a dual-core 500MHz CPU would give you the same performance, while using half the power. A dual-core 750MHz CPU would have 50% more performance for the same power, and a dual-core 1GHz CPU would have double the performance and double the power.

    The point is if you're going to double your performance, doubling your cores uses half as much power as doubling your clockspeed.

    This is all "under load" as well. These CPUs (and desktop CPUs) are very good at going into low power states when they're inactive for mere milliseconds.

    If they got a quad-core processor into the PSP2 then I think they can get a dual-core into the iPhone 5.

    I'll probably upgrade my iPoT 3G to an i5 with my the money from selling my Dyslexia Mac, as I don't need 2 laptops, yet yearn for an iPhone :P

    There will be "something" in July, it might not be much, but it'll be there :-)

    I just want 64GB...

    That's all

    I'm not saying that a dual core CPU isn't faster than a single core.

    Ok maybe Safari will be able to load/render pages a bit quicker, but the majority of your browsing speed is determined on your Wifi or 3G speeds.
    Writing an email, writing a text, making a phone call, watching a movie, listening to music, taking photo's, viewing photo's, downloading Apps, download any media, using Google Maps, using YouTube, and much much more isn't going to be faster.

    Things that would be faster/run better would be the graphical intensive games like Infinity Blade, exporting videos to upload to YouTube, iMovie App.

    Well, I'm one of the ones waiting for the iPhone 5 rather than jumping on the iPhone 4 bandwagon - it would be a shame for them NOT to release the 5.

    Besides, the iPhone 4's design needs to go - two heavy plates of glass are nice in theory, but that makes for one heavy, shatterable phone.

    The Safari web pages have to be written in and out of memory by the CPU, so you should see a performance increase and shorter loading times, assuming there's not a bottle neck in the read/ write speed for the memory.

    As for performance, a dual-core chip will speed up any program that utilizes the cores in parallel, not just games.

    Okay can some one please tell me how fast is a dual core? I keep hearing people saying that the A9 chip will be faster than the A4. But how much faster? The A4 is 1GHZ so how fast is the A9? or any of those new chips?
    I need answers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    IMO the software is where Apple's attention should be. It is a very good stable platform, but they are so restrictive. Give us bluetooth file transfer (how is sending a picture I took via bluetooth a breach of copyright?!), better themeing options, custom sounds for mail etc, custom sound EQ... I could go on and on...
