Nokia CEO: Multicore Processors are a waste of Battery

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop said that multicore processors are a waste of battery life for the consumer and nothing else, in a recent interview with a Chinese newspaper Yangcheng Evening News.

The so-called dual-core, quad-core mobile phones can only waste batteries, but not be useful for consumers all the time.

He also claimed that no iPhone or Android smartphone has been able to beat Nokia 900′s performance despite their multicore innards.

I sincerely believe that Elop believes that multi-core is a waste. It shows in his decision to kill Symbian/Meego and bet the whole house on WP7. What a one-track mind? Any logical CEO would have refrained from killing your cash cows till you have a solid replacement product line in place.

Multicore Processors are a waste of Battery. & Nokia mobiles are a waste of Money.
