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.

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