What? With a simple overclocking excercise they could've announced it and got it out tomorrow while it is still barely acceptable for a premium android to have single core. Q4 in SE lingo means end of December. They'll drop out of the radar next year at the rate they're going.
It was actually dated for October at IFA.
If they price it right, ie lower than the arc is now... That could be a winner. If can position themselves just under the rest of the android players they may have found their niche.
Although this seems to be an "Apple" tactic. Hehehe. Although if can work fast and get this out with 4.0 instead... THAT would be a very newsworthy move.
