Promise higher performance, longer battery life

Chipmakers ST-Ericsson and ARM announced that they have teamed to optimize the Android mobile OS for the ST-Ericsson U8500 platform, which uses ARM's Cortex-A9 dual core processor. According to the partnership optimization will provide peak application performance, and either 120 hours of audio playback or 12 hours of full HD video playback, on one battery charge. The partnership plans to release their code enhancements to the Android Open Source community.

Increased use of web browsing and other smartphone applications has led to demand for more powerful processors on mobile devices. Multiple core support allows the processor to work at a reduced rate, which gives the same level of performance provided by a faster single-core processor while using far less power.
