Windows Very light on details, but this is interesting nonetheless - very interesting, and potentially one of the biggest things to have hit the operating systems business this decade. Bloomberg is reporting that Microsoft plans to announce Windows for ARM processors at CES in January 2011.

To put it simply, Android just sucks at power management.
Dalvik sucks just as much as java SE, or worse. There is already a standard derivation of java SE tuned for mobile devices and that is called J2ME. Jazelle is a JVM that is wired right inside the hardware. Jazelle is an order of magnitude better than Dalvik.

Google didn't implement Dalvik for power efficiency, or if they did they did, they failed big time and they have the stupidest engineers on earth.
Android sucks battery life like there is no tomorrow. Very few (any?) Android device can last more than 2 days. Some Symbian devices last several weeks. And Android is not even comparable to Symbian in features. It can be compared to S40, which is also much more efficient both in power management and in performance.
