Mobile processors are is going through upgrade cycles much faster than
the desktop and server processor market. 1st and 2nd gen iPhone users
can't record videos like the 3 GS -- why? It's probably a matter of
changing a config file to allow it on older hardware but can it handle
the workload well enough that it won't furstrate a few million end
users? I can run Windows 7 on a seven year old DELL notebook but do you
think can play the latest video games on it? Or even games from 5-7
years ago? Probably not. So if you'd like to develop your own Freemantle
port for N8X0 and N700 tablets we can all help you QA your efforts and
file lots of bugs for modern software that can't run efficiently on
legacy hardware.
