    Yeah, like in this new Samsung S4. But the octocore is only available in Europe and Asia. It looks like a great device.

    Could be a little pricey but no mention of battery life, looks good otherwise when they get here I might get one. All the smart phones I have used were not a good phone so have resisted getting one. I will not get a fruit company item due to the walled garden.

    Judging by the rumors in Germany, it may cost around $750 without contract.

    Some multi core processor has one low power core. During idle or reading will use only this core for minimum battery consumption. Most of the time other cores just sleep.

    I find that to be real superfluous, what the bloody hell are people doing on these phones that even require a quad core let along two of them?! Seriously right now, I'd rather have an octocore chip in my PC than my phone!

    I guess samsung must be gearing up for android 5 or something....

    They have their own os coming.

    Probably find an ubuntu variant will run like a dream. Full blown desktop os on a phone. There ya go. No extra cost.

    If these things are getting so good, what is the point of a 7 in tablet.

    Android 5 is rumored to come in a couple of months together with Nexus 7.7.

    What would be the point of a PC, laptop or tablet for that matter except for creating something.
