Samsung's 2GHz dual-core smartphone will melt your pants next year

Is that 1.2GHz dual-core HTC Sensation just not powerful enough for ya? Samsung agrees. The world's largest consumer electronics company will reportedly drop a smartphone with a mighty 2GHz dual-core next year.

According to the Maeli Business Newspaper, Samsung's powerful smartphone will be available "by next year" and "have the data processing capacities of a regular PC." My fingers are crossed on it playing Crysis 2.

There's no doubt in my mind that Samsung is up to the challenge, but let's hope a souped-up smartphone doesn't mean a trade-off on battery life. A 2GHz processor won't really mean squat if you still won't have a 4G signal in your area or still get dropped calls on your lousy network. Don't get me wrong, I love a smartphone on steroids as much as the next guy or girl, but really, how much is too much?

Why stop at dual-core? Sony's NGP has a quad-core processor. What could you possibly be doing with your smartphone that you need computer performance? Producing the next Avatar or Lady Gaga hit at Starbucks?
