ZOMG!! 8 Core Tablet from Samsung?
This is so completely over the top for a tablet that it makes my head spin. An 8 core tablet? What the hell is the point? But the bigger question is, how much will it cost and how long will the battery last?
It didn’t take long to get to multiple cores just like we have in desktop machines did it? But seriously, what are you going to do with all that computing power? I know this is the future of tablet, more power, more memory, I’m just wondering what kind of apps this will let you run and what kind of future apps and games this will spawn developers to create. You can certainly make some wickedly cool games, far beyond the "casual" genre that’s for sure. And if games are the mainstay for this kind of device, does this spell trouble for Consoles? If you have the same, if not more, power in the palm of your hand for gaming, why do you need bulky console?
I love my iPad and really hope Apple takes this as a wake up call they need to listen to. I wonder if Apple has a new multiple core machine in the wings. Either way, it’s going to be hard to resist this sort of device. I could have a lot of fun with a tablet like this.
