    it is still unclear about ram but most likely it has 1gb. The first ipad had only 256mb of ram which was kinda odd.

    iirc, the os and a few other system stuff will use some of that 1gb. so its going to be alot less memory thats available.

    Actually it is it's own state although technically part of China it is self governed and free from any of China's restrictions. For all intents and purposes it is its own country. It was released by us (the British), but not to China but as it's own independant place (stimpulated at the time to be for a minimum of 50 years).

    No, its mainland china that have problems with fake shop and yes, Hong Kong is part of China but why are you mentioning Hong Kong when the fake shop appear in China and have nothing to do with Hong Kong?

    The fake shops were all in mainland China, if it happened in Hong Kong, it'll be closed down in a day because a) Hong Kong has tough anti-piracy laws (you can't buy fake software easily anymore) b) people know how real Apple stores look like. The ones in China will tend to also say Apple Store, or in one instance, one said "Apple Stoer" lol.

    Mali-400 in galaxy S II is quad-core GPU, while in 4S and Ipad2 543MP2 the last number in it's name is equal to number of cores. plus as i said you can argue with GSII being better than 4S in terms of hardware, but at least it's on pair with apple. now please consider that it was released 6 month ago, and as a competitor to 4S we should consider Nexus Prime, or other phones being released within a month.

    all that being said I'll repeat my last post: Right now I don't see any advantage of Iphone having 543 GPU inside, the only thing that is using it is Infinite blade 2 that the were talking about at presentation which is nothing special same Unreal Engine 3. Nvidia is highly interested in developing new mobile gaming segment, so they are working closely with google on android side an manufacturers such as Asus which will be first to feature quad core Kal-El. look at Lost Planet 2 demo running on Android, it's amazing, just get regular HDMI cable and play it on HD screen. also upcoming ShadowGun, insane visuals...

    ok lets forget about GPU and Dual LED flash:
    bigger screens, AMOLED in case of GSII, more processing power 1.2GHz Dual Core CPUs, while 4S is using underclocked A5 (probably 800-1000MHz), HDMI ports, and then it continues on software side, Android, Flash, customization, open source, so on.

    I do admit that i sound like maybe fanboy? or just apple hater, I don't know maybe it's the case...

    P.S.
    really sad news about steve jobs... RIP

    The 4s has me sold....for my wife.

    I owned an ipod touch, and then got the first droid 1 (now droid x)...been an avid apple hater for years, got my wife off a crackberry 6 months ago and bought her an htc incredible (android) and she loves it...but she comes home (as a hair stylist) with her phone at 10-20 % battery life and sometimes dead all together...despite getting her an extra battery she thinks its too complicated. Im proud of her for picking up android os so easy but she is eligible for an upgrade and...maybe because im feeling sentimental about steve jobs, but im going to buy her the 4S when it comes out in a week (then sell the incredible on criagslist for 140, buy the 4s for 200, out of pocket is 60 bucks). The 4s is supposed to have better battery life than the 4...which from being around my stupid sister in law at disney world all day for 10 days..I can tell you the 4's battery life will easily do a long day and have tons left at the end...so..Im going to buy it for her. She will miss the apps that download songs free and the widgets...but I think she will get over it.

    had to vent...as Im going against my beliefs over the last 3 years.

    Hong Kong passed legislation which allowed police to have more powers to clamp down on piracy, since the mid 2000s, it's quite difficult to find pirated software, let alone stores lol.

    Jailbreaking is essentially what rooting is in Android. However, Jailbreaking involves exploits while rooting is actually supported in Linux, hence supported in Android.

    To gain root access in android devices that don't normally have root access to begin with(Which is all consumer devices, only developer devices are completely rooted) people use security exploits all the time, and not on just the OS but the bootloader as well.(HTC and the whole new encryption that took forever to break)
