I think next time they will claim that it will be better than i7 extreme.....

  • hahaha

no way the adreno 200 is similar to ps2 or the wii......games on the htc derire wich uses the same gpu aka adreno lags in peformance...when compared to galaxy s aka power vr 540.and the hames on ps2 is too graphic intensive for the adreno ...stop lying qualcomm....and adreno gpu is inferior to the power 535 gpu of iphone 3gs.....

But which handsets gonna get it first??!?!!
