Hi Sean/Lyle,

Here is the correct link, the Engineer states that the Skate has a MSM8255 processor just after 2:20 on the video

http://www.youtube.c...h?v=P8fWSXNy7l8

Thanks


yup he definitely says arm7 8255 and "supports all google apps" - well without arm7 its not going to support google talk video......

Hi Tillaz
That link doesn't seem to be working. Taken down already?
Will ask about this though. Our understanding at the moment is that this is not the case - but things can move along so worth checking out.
cheers
Lyle


I sent Sean an email about this then realised he's on holiday! The video was taken in June and the chap reporting the Skate specs is a senior engineer at ZTE. He probably knows what he's on about! I hope :)

Yep me too, but then there is this site listing both versions??

Either they know there is two versions or there just as confused as us.

Wondering that as well.

Maybe whoever the PR guys e.g. Sean_Jacko contact at ZTE for info have provided incorrect info?

now the question goes back to if it is available from zte as a 1ghz arm7 for £229 or from orange as 800mhz arm6 for £150, is anyone going to buy either - one's underspecced and the other is overpriced.

if its 1ghz arm7 for £150 i'll have me a couple! :D

Nah that guy in the video is a senior engineer at ZTE.

PR guys can only talk based on the information they have been given.

Oh boy, do I wish that were true.

Unfortunately PR folk have a habit of massively embellishing on what they are told, or inventing totally new stuff, without checking back that their statements are justified. At the same time, they like to ban real engineers from talking, on the basis they might actually tell the truth - contradicting the PR person.

If that sounds bitter and twisted, let's just say I've had to deal with the fallout from dealing with the mindset, close up.

How do you find out who has downrated? I've had some fanboys nerdrage and downvote my posts too :P.

EDIT: Never mind, found out it was a typical CM fanboy B).
