Parallel Processing Lacking

Can you believe it hardware is evolving faster compared to software. True, today dual core and quad core processors are very common, but software development is lacking. Millions have been earmarked to rewrite software so that these new breed of processors can be utilised optimally. But work is still in research stage in universities.
Intel is planning to come out with a ten core processor for users in near future. But true advantage could be taken only if true multithreading is achived by rewriting programs for parallel processing.
Till then your processor just saves some bill on electricity bill by being less heat producing.

i-Phone 3G Superfluous for India

i-Phone 3G. Do you want to own a brand or utility. Mainly 3G services are unavailable in India and is not expected to be rolled out soon. So do you want to own a phone which you cant use fully for a price of 35,000 INR. That is totally upto your discretion. You will not be able to use broadband internet services and chances are when available you will be charged an exorbitant amount of sum to use the same services.

Also the camera at 2 MP is certainly not a USP . Also it misses on other important corporate friendly features. So do you need to go for this phone or for some other user friendly phone from which you will be able to extract the bang for the buck.
