Default Re: Samsung phones outselling Apple

You know, I'm a bit curious about why iphones are dual core, and all of the hype about quad core in the iphone 5 (which android already has by the way.) The reason why, is that in spite of having multiple cores, iOS isn't capable of multitasking. Sure you can have multiple apps open at once, but only one of them can actually be doing something at a time.

I could imagine maybe some apps out there being multi-threaded, so there may be *some* use for dual core, but quad core? What use is it?
