Question NOKIA N73 processor

Welcome
I intend to buy NOKIA N73, and i have a question: what type of processor N73 has and what is the frequency (MHZ). Is it faster than 32-bit RISC ARM9 220MHZ in N6630? I heard that N6630 and N73 have the same processor.
Thanks for your help.

The processor in the N73 (as reported by SysExplorer) is an ARMv1024 at 200MHz

My understanding is that the N73 uses a 206MHz processor but the OS is considered to be much faster so it may appear that the N73 is faster than the 6630 when it is in MHz-talk slower.

So, is the same as N91 (by SysExplorer): ARM v1024, ABi: ARM4; CPU speed: 201Mhz; and 16,7 Mcolors... strange!

Yes, same base hardware as N91 (and I am fairly sure a lot of the other Ns are similar) - as said previously, S60 v3 is faster than v2, so makes the phone feel faster overall.

To get the best out of your N73, reboot it once a day. I know this is a pain, but with a few firmware updates to fix the memory leaks, N73 should get faster and more stable.

Same words: To get the best out of your N791, reboot it once a day (maybe). I know this is a pain, but with a few firmware updates to fix the memory leaks and HDD crazy behavior sometimes, N91 should get faster and more stable.

How relliable is SysExplorer? My interrogation is about screen resolution.
Nokia specifications sheet - 262.000 colors;
SysExplorer on N91 - 16,7 Mcolors
Is that true
Is a great screen, but 16,7Mcolors

I'll bet you that in this case, SysExplorer is looking at the bit size of the graphics processor (i.e. 32 bit = 16.7M colours), yet that's not necessarily what the screen can actually display.

Seeing as the human eye can only detect something like 217 independent colours, it doesn't make much difference anyway

Thanks. On little screen like the phones screens, more than 262.000 colors, is more marketing then another thing.
