    ARM unveils Cortex A7, its most energy efficient processor - SlashGear

    The Cortex A7 may appear to be a stepped up Cortex A8, which is a rather old design, but the A7 is much improved in several areas. On its own, the A7 could power sub-$100 entry level smartphones for 2013-2014 with the same processing performance as todays $500 high-end smartphones.
    Assuming that these claims can be believed: providing that either BB7 BBX can be ported; RIM could possibly make a thinner pearl with specs that are close to the 9360, at LEAST 5.5 hours battery, and at a no-contract price of under $250.

    yes, i pulled the numbers out of my ***.

    but does it sound theoretically possible?

    200=$320, and the 9360 whups both the 9105 and the 9700.

    I'm looking at maybe the 60-125 range for a device superior to the current Pearl.
