Yes, just read a similar report on Symbian Freak.

At a time when the competitive products from the corresponding category and price tag are able to offer at least twice better processor with a dedicated GPU, the Nokia’s choice of a humble and outdated single ARM processor design and the insufficient 128 MB of RAM looks like a serious miscalculation if you ask me and I must say that I am very, very disappointed with Nokia's hardware choice.
(http://www.symbian-freak.com/news/009/04/dream_is_over_n97_processor_details_revealed.htm)

Please tell me this isn't true or that it won't be a problem, though I suspect it will.

What are Nokia thinking :con?

I am very disappointed at this.. But doesnt make sense in comparison to the FCC pictures however - ARM 11, 434 Mhz? Theres no news on the web as to this specific type of processor at all.

The weirder thing is - when I went to the TI site to check out their offerings:

http://focus.ti.com/paramsearch/docs/parametricsearch.tsp?&familyId=44&uiTemplateId=PP-TP&techFamId=null&sectionId=2&tabId=25&appId=null&viewDeviceCallingPage=null&totalCount=159&showAdditionalParameters=no&parameter=2437704398&lc=3000897&lc=2000887&lc=2001216&lc=2000062&lc=2001224&lc=2001253&lc=2000702&lc=2001215&lc=2000059&lc=2000568&lc=2000603&lc=2000885&lc=2000607&lc=2000980&lc=2001218&lc=2001202&compare=yes&download=yes&sort=yes&customize=yes&paramResults=yes&paramCriteria=yes&familyTree=yes&military=no&baSystem=yes&paramTable=no&sortOption=PA_SUB_FAMILY_NAME&sortMode=DESC&searchPaths=1000044&pageId=undefined&templateId=0&navigationId=0&family=dsp&paramTable=no&military=no&&uiTemplateId=PP-TP&techFamId=null&sectionId=2&tabId=25&appId=null&viewDeviceCallingPage=null&resetCompare=true#sdp

Comes up with two different frequencies - 600 Mhz "Risc" frequency and a 430 Mhz "Frequency". Could there be some mix up somewhere along the line in this information?

Regardless though - Huge disappointment. Unfortunately as I have said many times - hardware and software work hand in hand. No matter how good the hardware is, if there is no software support, then it might as well not be there in the first place. Unless we get some real support through major vendors such as Nokia (through their software), then having super hardware will not mean anything (other than to show off that your phone can do billions of polygons a second or something).

Think I've settled in on the Omnia HD.. goodbye Nokia..

The reaction from symbian frak reminds me of South Park
